INFO321 - Database Management Systems


This course is a study of major advancements in database technology that have taken place in recent years. It does not assume any prior background in the field of databases, and, hence, starts with basic introductory concepts, but covers advanced topics as well. The course will cover both conceptual and hands-on material in the area of database management, thus enabling students to have the maximum amount of comprehension and retention of material covered in the course. The student must have access to MS Access. This software is not provided by the course material grant and must be purchased/provided by the student. Course software requirements with the appropriate versions are listed under the course materials site. Note for Mac Users: Access 2013 does not work on Mac OS. APUS recommends using Windows OS even on Mac. If Mac OS must be used it is recommended to install Windows on Parallels (purchased separately) and install Access 2013 on the Windows OS via Parallels.
