Course Description 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 systems.

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.
