Status Core
The main objective of the course is to introduce students to the basic concepts of databases and their models, techniques for designing database schemas at the conceptual and implementation level as well as the structured query language (SQL) of relational databases. With the practical application of a modern database management system the acquired knowledge is applied with the aim of designing and implementing a database of a real information system.
In addition to a thorough understanding of the principles of the databases, students are trained to solve specific problems using scientific methods and procedures. By participating in the development of database projects based on real systems students develop the skills of abstract thinking, the usage and linking of knowledge from different areas as well as easy adaptation to new development environments.
