Course Objectives:
It is expected that upon successful completion of the course, the students should be able to:
1. Define Database, characteristics and functions of Database Management System and
types of Database Users
2. Distinguish between a Traditional File System and a Database System
3. Compare the advantages and disadvantages of Database System with traditional File
system
4. Describe Data Models, Schemas, Instances, Three Schema Architecture and DBMS
Component Modules
5. Define the Relational Data Model, its constraints, and the Relational Database
Schema.
6. Demonstrate the use of SQL for Database creation and maintenance
7. Design Queries in relational Algebra and relational Calculus.
8. Use SQL queries for data aggregations, calculations, views, sub-queries, embedded
queries, manipulation and report generation.
9. State the informal design guidelines for Relational database.
10. Interpret advantages of standardized database system.
11. Illustrate the definition of Functional Dependency, Inference rules, Equivalent of Sets
to FDs, and Minimal Sets of FDs.
12. Review the Three Normal Forms based on Partial and transitive dependencies.
13. Apply normalization techniques to DB.
14. Describe the Entity-Relationship (ER) modeling tool using Unified Modeling
Language (UML).
15. Convert a conceptual Data Model into relational logical schema.
16. Model real world database system using ERD from the requirements specifications.
17. Identify the data integrity and security requirements of DB.
18. Design and implement a full real size database system
