From the course plan

"Concurrent programming plays a vital role in systems where many events appear to occur simultaneously. This course aims to provide an introduction to the problems common to concurrent systems such as operating systems, distributed systems and real-time systems, and practical knowledge of the programming constructs and techniques offered by modern concurrent programming languages."
