Diplômes intégrant cet élément pédagogique :


Databases today  are essential to every business, corporation  and  many scientific investigations. They are behind  major  popular  systems as Google  or Amazon, they  store  important data of many  kind of companies and they are  even key components in research on physics, biology, health and several other fields. Database Management Systems (DBMS)  are powerful, but complex, systems  for creating  and managing  large amounts of data efficiently  and allowing it to persist over the time. In this course, we shall learn the foundations of DBMS and  most important  aspects  to design and to use  relational databases.

Program summary :
The theoretic part covers the following topics: DBMS functionalities, overview of the most common data models, the relational approach (algebra, SQL, normalization, etc.) ,  transactional support  and database design. We study database schema design using the entity-relation model and introduce an algorithm to translate such an abstraction to a normalized relational schema.  The pragmatic part of the course is intended to familiarize students with the use of the Standard Query Language, SQL. We also introduce JDBC, the Java API to access
relational databases.
