COURSE OUTLINE
Course Code : CS 340
Pre-requisite : CS 210
Course Title : Introduction to Database System Instructor : Dr. Suad AlRamouni
Credit Hours : 3
Email: [email protected]
I.
Course Description:
An overview of database systems (definitions, evolution, architecture and applications).
Data modeling. Entity-relationship and relational data models. Database query
languages and standards. Database design: theory and methodology.
II. Course Objectives:
Providing students with a broad introduction to the fundamentals of database Systems.
Producing students capable of modeling, designing and tuning databases.
Knowledge
Describe database concepts, evolution, architecture, applications, and design.
Introduce the Structured Query Language (SQL).
Cognitive Skills
Apply analytical skills in basic database design. Train students on designing and
constructing a database in the oracle environment and on querying the
database using SQL.
Interpersonal Skills & Responsibility
Design an appropriate database structure and implement the structure using a
DBMS (Oracle SQL).
Numerical & Communication Skills
Improve students’ design and implementation skills as well as presentation
techniques. Work in a group in order to develop the sample database.
III.
Course Content
The course has a substantial amount of material to be covered in a short time.
This requires the student make a strong effort to keep up with the material
discussed in class. Below is an outline of the topics covered.
