To provide students with a practical understanding of database systems including the concept of a database, database management systems, and SQL.
To provide an in depth understanding of the database design process including conceptual, logical and physical design.
To be able to implement database systems, and consider issues such as security, transactions, and locking.
Indicative content includes:
- Fundamental database concepts; what is a database, tables, queries, etc.
- SQL as a language and its function within databases.
- Database design and normalisation; conceptual, logical and physical design concepts and techniques.
- Implementation of a database design.
- Security concerns, concepts, and mechanisms.
- Transactions and concurrency control.
Equivalent to 40%. Uses key areas of theory or knowledge to meet the Learning Outcomes of the module. Is able to formulate an appropriate solution to accurately solve tasks and questions. Can identify individual aspects, but lacks an awareness of links between them and the wider contexts. Outputs can be understood, but lack structure and/or coherence.
Equivalent to the range 60%-69%. Is able to analyse a task or problem to decide which aspects of theory and knowledge to apply. Solutions are of a workable quality, demonstrating understanding of underlying principles. Major themes can be linked appropriately but may not be able to extend this to individual aspects. Outputs are readily understood, with an appropriate structure but may lack sophistication.
Equivalent to the range 70%+. Assemble critically evaluated, relevent areas of knowledge and theory to constuct professional-level solutions to tasks and questions presented. Is able to cross-link themes and aspects to draw considered conclusions. Presents outputs in a cohesive, accurate, and efficient manner.
