Course context for academic year 2023-24

Database is a fundamental course that develops concepts presented in the areas of programming and mathematics and introduces the basic techniques of databases, essential for the effective and efficient management software, particularly development, and many other areas that benefit from its power and versatility. From this perspective, all phases of designing a database in order to serve effectively and efficiently to the requirements for which was created be addressed. This course will also raise the problem of the administration and management of the database from an eminently practical point of view where students will face problems and concrete solutions that will be applied to their future professional exercises.
