Database Management Systems

This is the foyer of the Database Management Systems course. This is an introductory course that describes the basics of a DBMS.

Databases are one of the premier technologies of our times. There are generally only two courses in a Computer Science curriculum that deal only with specific systems of programs. These are the Operating System course and the Database course. A MIS/CIS/IT curriculum might also have courses on ERP and CRM, both of which have at their heart a DBMS. Clearly this is an important topic.

There are several main modules that need to be considered. Each of these is an exit below.
