Full Curriculum


The Database Management Systems Bachelor of Science Degree is designed to provide students a broad range of data management skills. Students will learn to work with Corporate Management subject matter experts (SME) to analyze information needs and determine what data is needed to support the programming and management needs. Students will gain a solid understanding of data modeling, design, administration, programming and security. Additionally concepts such as data warehouse modeling and maintenance, data mining and database integration and distributed architecture concepts are cover. It is highly recommended that all students use open electives to enhance this degree by taking more programming and security classes as electives.
