Relational Database Design
BeginnersPrerequisites

Tue 30 Apr 2019

Description

This course gives a simple introduction to organizing your data in a relational database. It aims to explain the arranging of your data. It does not deal with specific relational databases systems such as Access, Oracle or SQL Server, or the technical tools that you would or could use to set up your database. The course aims to provide you with enough information to sit down and design your database, regardless of the database product that you intend to use. Exercises will be done on paper, without using computers.

Target audience
  • All current University members (departments and colleges)
  • Further details regarding eligibility criteria are available
