Course Credits



'This course provides an understanding of the role of information and databases in systems and their role as an organizational resource. Students learn to design databases using normalization and entity-relationship diagrams, develop data models and to build applications with database management systems (i.e., Microsoft Access and SQL). Techniques are examined and applied to business problems through exercises and projects. The course's cornerstone is a group project involving the implementation of a DBMS-based system which supports a realistic business application and the development of a companion user's manual.'
