Entry requirements

Note: Admission requirements for non-programme students usually also include admission requirements for the programme and threshold requirements for progression within the programme, or corresponding.

Prerequisites

Basic programming as well as data structures and algorithms.

Intended learning outcomes

The aim of this course is to give a thorough introduction to the theoretical and practical issues underlying the design and implementation of modern database systems. After the completion of the course you should be able to:

  • explain and use important terminology in text-based information management in a correct way.
  • design a data model using EER diagrams.
  • design and use a relational database.
  • explain the theory behind the relational model and how this affects good design of databases.
  • explain which file structures in the database management system can be used to implement a database system.
  • explain the basic principles for indexing a database.
  • explain which problems can occur when several users use the database and solutions to this.
  • explain how a database can guarantee persistence of data.

Course content

  • Principles for general database management systems: DBMS,
  • Methods for database design and use. Datamodelling with ER,
  • Relational databases, SQL and relational algebra
  • Normalisation of relational databases
  • Datastructures for databases, indexing
  • Transactions and cncurrency
  • Recovery of databases
  • Exempels on how effective data management can support sustainable development through a scenario.

Teaching and working methods

The course consists of lectures, laboratory work and a
project. Lectures are devoted to theory and techniques. Database
design and implementation techniques are practised in the laboratory
work.
