About the Course

The course introduces the students to the role of data, information, and knowledge in software engineering. The course has two general themes: (1) fundamental concepts
related to data in software engineering; (2) basic principles of database systems as seen by users, application programmers and database administrators. The course introduces concepts and techniques related to working with data,information and knowledge, although the focus is mostly on data and information.Techniques related to extraction, representation, modeling, access, and visualization of data are discussed. The course then introduces the role of databases and database management systems, covering topics such as algebra and the relational database, logical and physical design of databases, and the use of SQL. This includes programming in SQL, from the perspective of a user querying or modifying an existing database, by a database designer, and by an application programmer invoking SQL from a host language. The course also highlights the difference between SQL and NoSQL and covers different data models such as XML, RDF, and JSON.
