CSCI 362 Databases and Data Mining

3 hours

In this course, students will understand the fundamental principles of database management systems (DBMS). Through projects, they will gain valuable skills on how to design scalable databases using entity-relationship diagrams. They will learn how to extract useful information from the database by discovering patterns within the underlying data. Finally, they will develop database analyst skills using SQL, and use this to implement several real-life database applications. Students will gain hands-on experience with a modern DBMS platform (MySQL) by completing several exercises in the computer lab. Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to design and organize a database to manage their application data, and be able to design queries to extract useful information from a database.
