Course Introduction

INF2007F is a 12-credit course developed and for students intending to major in Information Systems degrees. Students pursuing other degrees may be accepted, space permitting.

The course introduces students to database concepts, design and implementation, and new developments in the database field. These are core skills which Information Systems professionals require throughout their careers. There is a strong practical component to the course, where students will learn how to design, implement, and use databases. This course explores different database architectures and design approaches, data modeling techniques, data dictionaries, database implementation, database security, and administration. Students are given exposure to Structured Query Language (SQL) and ActiveX Data Objects (ADO) in C#. While Microsoft technologies are used in the lectures and workshops the concepts are applicable to any development context, and the workshops ensure that students are able to apply this knowledge to real-world applications.
