This course has been designed to enhance your professional abilities, and deepen your knowledge and understanding of emerging, state-of-the-art database technologies. It will equip you with the range of highly marketable, hands-on skills required in data modelling, and in designing, managing, monitoring and administering corporate database systems divisions, information centres and webenabled database applications.
The course combines academic study with Oracle certification training, and you will be encouraged to take the associated Oracle exams and become an Oracle Certified Associate. It is suitable for recent graduates who wish to study for a higher qualification and/or gain relevant technical and professional skills in database systems. It´s also a strong course for practitioners looking to enhance their professional abilities, develop their careers, and update their technical skills, knowledge and understanding of state-of-the-art and emerging technologies.
You are expected to have a good Honours degree (at least a Lower Second) from a UK university (or overseas equivalent) in an IT or computing discipline, or in another discipline that either provides important underpinning for or insight into IT and computing, or it is closely related to it (eg sciences or engineering). If you do not have the required formal qualifications, but you are already in employment, you may be considered if your role involves use for support of modelling techniques and database technologies deployed in the course. If your first language is not English you will also need an IELTS score of at least 6.5, with 6.0 or above in each element, or equivalent.
BUSINESS INFORMATION SYSTEM POSTGRADUATE PROJECT MODULE
The project module plays a unifying role, and aims to encourage and reward your individual inventiveness and application of effort. It is an exercise that may take a variety of forms and which provides you with the experience of planning and bringing to fruition a major piece of individual work.
BUSINESS SYSTEMS PROGRAMMING
This is a hands-on module that uses Java to develop your programming skills and to give you a good practical understanding of object-oriented programming and concepts. Topics covered include data structures, GUI programming, applets, database connectivity, server-side programming (using JSP). As part of the module, you will learn the fundamentals of Java programming; how to handle events through programming; how to design and implement web-based applications communicating with a database and how object-orientation can enable you to re-use existing solutions and to facilitate new designs of software components.
DATA MANAGEMENT AND REPOSITORIES
You will learn about the theoretical and practical issues related to technologies employed for the persistent storage of data. This module discusses and evaluates the underlying technologies used in capturing, maintaining and modelling persistent data. Pursuing this, the evolution of Database Management Systems, their components and functionality will be discussed, along with some of the predominant and emerging data models.
This is a hands-on module that develops your database skills for the definition and manipulation of data constructs. You will use Oracle´s SQL to learn the features and constructs that contemporary ad hoc Database Query Languages offer; Oracle´s PL/SQL is used to teach the procedural and object-relational aspects of Data Query Languages; issues related to the efficient use of client/server programming constructs are also addressed. You will be given access to Oracle courseware that can help you with your preparation for Oracle Certification Exams, whereas the exercises and teaching materials used in this module are based on Oracle University materials.
RESEARCH METHODS AND PROFESSIONAL PRACTICE
This module will develop further your research and industry skills required for your professional development, future career and study. Among the skills that will be strengthened are those related to the awareness of the professional, legal and ethical issues, the critical evaluation, the collection and analysis of information, and the development and defence of a sound project proposal.
