Course Descriptions


    CS 335 - Database Management Systems

    An introduction to database systems and their environment.  Emphasis is on the relational database model. The basic principles of the relational model are discussed, at a relatively practical level. These principles are then used as a basis for learning and using SQL (Structured Query Language), using both the Data Definition Language (DDL) and Data Manipulation Language (DML) aspects. The practical use of SQL is strongly emphasized. Some coverage of Entity-Relationship modeling and Database Normalization is included. In addition, stored procedures are covered, using Oracle PL/SQL and other database stored procedure languages. The concepts are reinforced with the use of the Rivier College Oracle database server and/or other database implementations.
