Target Learners

This short course on Database Management System is a part of the bridge course program offered to the non-computer background students who aspire to take admission into M.Sc. Data Science course curriculum.

Course Overview

This course introduces the fundamental knowledge about principles and techniques required in the design and implementation of database systems. Also focuses on necessity of DBMS, characteristics, architecture, components, functions and merits-demerits of using a DBMS. Design database using technique such as E-R modelling, Normalization for reducing redundancy and concept of relational data model with added relational algebra.
