Course Objectives:
The course objectives are
1. To provide students with an overview of database management system architecture and environments, an
understanding of basic database design and implementation techniques, and practical experience of designing and
building a relational database.
2. To make students able to discuss/ explain the importance of data, the difference between file management and
database.
3. In addition, it enables to apply conceptual design methodologies for a database and learn about architecture and
environments of database management system.
4. Also enable students to design and evaluate suitable security and integrity levels for database schemas.
This course requires a practical work, which is assessed by producing individual and group small projects.
Course Description:
This is an introductory course appropriate for students with no experience in database management systems and with no
knowledge of SQL. Although various database models presented, the principal focus is on the relational model, the basis.
The course covers the principles of database design and implementation including relational theory, database development,
conceptual and logical modeling, and the use of SQL as a data definition and data manipulation languages, and contemporary
issues in database administration. Practical experience in entity-relationship modeling, database design and query writing is
provided using the DBMS Access and SQL
Intended Learning Outcomes :
Successful completion of this course should lead to the following learning outcomes :
A- Knowledge and understanding- student should:
A1. Be able to discuss/ explain the importance of data.
A2. Be able to discuss/ explain the difference between file management and database
A3. Be able to design a suitable database components and environments
A4. Be able to formulate the major constructs of relational DB languageSQL
A5. Be able to discuss/ explain the essential concepts and major principles relevant to the professional and
ethical responsibilities of being and developer. In particular database security and integrity.
B- Intellectual Skills- with ability to:
B1. Employ analytical skills as appropriate during database design and manipulation process
B2. Enhance as much as possible of per existing database design, development and manipulation process
B3. Design and implement practical database system. In particular be able to discus explain and apply the
relational model and mappings from conceptual designs. In particular normalizations.
B4. Identify a range of DB-solutions and critically evaluate them and justify proposed design and
development solutions.
B5. Analyze a wide rang of database design issues and provide solutions through suitable design,
structures, diagrams, and other appropriate design methods.
B6. Be able to apply and evaluate suitable database security and integrity levels.
C- Subject Specific Skills- with ability to:
C1. Use appropriate database design structures, forms and reports.
1
C2. Use the (DBMSs) scientific literature effectively.
C3. Give technical database presentations suitable for time, place, and audience.
C4. prepare and deliver coherent and structured verbal and written technical reports.
C5. Be aware of health and safety of real world computer DB information systems.
C6. plan and undertake a major individual/ group small projects.
D- Transferable Skills- with ability to:
D1. display an integrated approach to the deployment of communication skills.
D2. work effectively with database owners and for database users.
D3. Strike the balance between self-reliance and seeking help whennecessary.
D4. display personal responsibility by working to multiple deadlines in
