iSchool Graduate Course - IST659: Data Administration Concepts and Database Management
(Fall 2013, Spring 2014, Fall 2014)

IST 659 is an introductory course to database management systems. This course examines data structures, file organizations, concepts and principles of database management s ystems (DBMS); as well as, data analysis, database design, data modeling, database management and database implementation. More specifically, it introduces hierarchical, network and relational data models; entity relationship modeling; basics of Structured Query Language (SQL); data normalization; and database design. Using Microsoft’s Access and SQL Server DBMSs as implementation vehicles, this course provides hands on experience in database design and implementation through assignments, lab exercises and course projects. This course also introduces advanced database concepts such as transaction management and concurrency control, distributed databases, multi-tier client/server architectures, web-based database applications, data warehousing, and NoSQL.

UCI Undergraduate Course - CS122A: Introduction to Data Management
(taught in Winter Quarter 2009)

This course provides students with an introduction to the design of databases and the use of database management systems for applications. We will cover the entity relationship (E/R) approach to database design. We will cover the relational data model, mapping E/R designs to relations, relational design theory, abstract query language such as relational algebra, and programming in SQL. Students will get exposure to how relational database management systems are used to implement a database. Time permitting, we will also consider advanced database management features such as object-oriented and object-relational database systems. This course is aimed at database design and use of database management systems in implementing database applications.
