CSCI-UA.0060-001: Database Design and Web Implementation

In this course, we introduce principles and applications of database design. We begin by discussing design; and building a database prototype on the desktop using Visual Basic and Microsoft Access. We then introduce and move on to web-based implementations of database applications. Your primary projects will use a MySQL database running on the undergraduate web server using PHP and XHTML to present a coherent and attractive interface for the users. I encourage students to explore not only the principles of database design but also specific database issues and data complexities in their respective fields of study. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions. I look forward to working with you all.

Pre-requisites: CSCI-UA.0004 (Introduction to Web Design and Computer Principles) and CSCI-UA.0002 (Introduction to Programming)
