Database Administrator Course in Hyderabad

Course OverView

The course reviews topics such as conceptual data modelling, relational data model, relational query languages, relational database design and transaction processing and current technologies such as semantic web, parallel and noSQL databases. It exposes the student to the fundamental concepts and techniques in database use and development as well provides a foundation for research in databases.

The course assumes prior exposure to databases, specifically to the relational data model and it builds new technologies on this foundation. In thefirst half of the course the relational data model, relational query languages,relational database design and conceptual data modeling are reviewed. It then focuses on XML, RD, OWL, parallel, and noSQL databases. It also bridges databases and knowledgebases which is the current trend.

The course requires a term project in which the student implements a database application or explores a database issue.

We will use PostgresSQL as the database platform for doing the assignments.

Learning Goals

The course content is balanced on theory and practice, the course aims at achieving the following learning outcomes:

  • An appreciation of pervasive use of Knowledgebase and DBMS in dif- ferent application domains
  • Skill for developing database applications
  • Skills for devising data models and query languages
  • Skills for developing web database applications
  • Learning storage and indexing of data

Class participations, discussions and attendance are a critical component of the course and accounts 10

Written assignments will provide the students the opportunity to appre- ciate the theoretical underpinnings of the databases systems and comprise 20% of the term grade. These are on data modeling (Entity/Relationship data model), query languages (Relational Algebra and Relational Calculus), database design, and Resource Definition Framework or Ontology Web Lan- guage for knowledge representation. 

Two programming assignments and a term project will provide the op- portunity for the students to develop technical skills and comprise 20% of the term grade. The first project is on Structured Query Language and the sec- ond one is on the web database programming. The database project involves a complete database application development from design to implementation or a deeper investigation of a topic in databases and knowledgebases.

A mid-term and a final exam, each is 25%. Individual Assignments or Quizzes 20% Term Projects 15% Midterm Exams 30% Final Exam 35%.
