CISS 250 Database Management Systems

This course provides a solid and practical foundation for the design, implementation and management of a database system. It familiarizes students with the basic data base models –hierarchical, Network/CODASYL, relational and object-oriented, and their capabilities with standard data base management systems. Its main focus is the combination of data base design and manipulation principles with hands-on experience. Database design is emphasized using both theory and end-user requirements, as they relate to description support activities. The overall objective is to provide the basis for a solid education in the fundamentals of data base technology and, in particular, to pave the way for an understanding of the direction in which the field is currently developing and is likely to develop in the future. Open only to matriculated Computer Information Systems students.
