Program description

This course introduces participants to databases and data manipulation. Database engineering is an important tool for any type of information management.

This course introduces you to databases and data manipulation. The course focuses on thematic (also known as attribute) databases, the relational data model, and queries in the query language SQL. Database engineering is an important tool for any type of information management. The techniques learnt will be useful in a variety of settings in professional life.

The course is relevant for anyone working with (usually large) collections of structured data. It focuses on what database technology has to offer, and lays the foundation for more advanced data handling techniques covered in other courses.

We expect a basic level of computer skills and independence from participants, as well as familiarity with standard Windows software and secondary school discrete mathematics, and the ability to explore new software and new datasets.

Objectives
Databases are used to organize very large, well-structured data collections for multiple user groups & purposes. This is important to organizations in which the information provisioning is a critical success factor to the organization’s mission. Database technology can also be extremely useful in smaller, one-off projects for single users with a short time span.

Instruction modes
Distance course. Self-study combined with intensive online support from ITC lecturers. Task-based learning that blends theory and practice. Study load is 16-24 hours per week. Materials and software provided both online and on USB.

Curriculum
Database Management Systems, Relational data model, Set theory and mathematical logic for database querying, database querying, database maintenance, introduction to database design.
