CSC 325 DATABASE MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS

This course focuses on the basic principles of Database Management Systems. Students learn why databases are important to the information age. Data Modeling is taught using Entity Relationship diagrams. These data models are then translated into Relational schemas as students learn about Relational Algebra, Calculus, and Relational Database Systems. Practical experience is gained through projects using the commercial RDBMS ORACLE. Students learn SQL (both DDL and DML), database administration, and how to create complete database applications. The course will culminate in a major programming project that demonstrates proficiency in modern database technology.
