About this course

After this course, students will be able to

  • understand the basics of conceptual data modeling in the Entity Relationship model and UML, and translating a natural language specification of a conceptual model into a relational database schema;
  • understand the relational database model;
  • understand and create advanced SQL and Datalog queries for retrieving relevant data, potentially spanning multiple database tables and involving recursion and aggregation of data;
  • will acquire the ability to design, based on a problem description in a variety of application domains, a database suited to solve this problem; and,
  • will be able to quickly master and make practical use of contemporary frameworks and technologies for relational data management.

Learning outcomes

The focus of the course is on practical problem-solving in an application domain. Students will gain practical experience developing the ability to design effective databases based on a solid understanding of the underlying principles. By design, hands-on practical assignment(s) using contemporary frameworks and technologies are a central component of the course. The following topics will be covered:

  • Data modeling: conceptual modeling in the ER model and UML; logical data modeling in the relational database model; optimization of logical models, basics of normalization.
  • Querying databases: SQL basic queries, aggregation; Datalog basic queries, recursion.
