General Information

Overview

Relational databases are pervasive in information technology; designing and building these databases is a challenging yet rewarding occupation. This unit will introduce you to data modelling, relational database theory, and normalisation. These are essential skills for the design and implementation of relational databases. The problems associated with poorly designed and implemented databases are demonstrated. The important database language Structured Query Language (SQL) is covered in sufficient depth to allow you to appreciate its potential and limitations. Other topics covered in this unit include multi-user database processing and other front-end applications. During the unit, you will design and implement a small database application. The unit aims to give you a solid theoretical foundation while also providing you with an opportunity to apply the theory through the assignment work.

Previous Student Feedback

Feedback, Recommendations and Responses

Every unit is reviewed for enhancement each year. At the most recent review, the following staff and student feedback items were identified and recommendations were made.

Feedback from Anecdotal student feedback + survey feedback

Feedback

Students appreciated the industry relevance of the materials this term.

Recommendation

Where possible, review the content of the unit to include more industry-relevant skills required in the industry. Also, consider removing this textbook and replacing it with internally developed materials; the Kroeke text is highly divergent from the industry.

Feedback from Anecdotal student feedback + survey feedback

Feedback

Style of teaching this term (interactive) was beneficial

Recommendation

Consider replacing the 2-hour lecture format with a workshop format. This is quite easy to do when classes are delivered via Zoom.
