This course is concerned with the use of Database Management
Systems (DBMS) to solve a wide range of information storage,
management and retrieval problems, in organizations ranging
from large corporations to personal applications, such as
research data management. The course combines the practical
aspects of DBMS use with more theoretical discussions of
database design methodologies and the "internals" of database
A significant part of the course will have students designing their own database and implementing it on different DBMS' running on different computer systems. We will use both ACCESS and ORACLE.
In the theoretical portion of the course we will examine the major types, or data models, of DBMS (hierarchical, network, relational, and object-oriented). We will discuss the principles and problems of database design, operation, and maintenance for each data model.
Graduate students only.
