General information

Contents and Course Structure

Several topics in the area of Database Administration are studied in this course with emphasis on:

In the first part of the seminar, students are requested to collect material on some aspect of the above topics and prepare a written report and an oral presentation. The focus is on generally applicable concepts - independent of concrete products.

In the second part of the seminar, we will discuss these concepts on a concrete database system, namely DB2. Students will then be requested to extend their written reports from the first part by a brief reflection where the general concepts are juxtaposed with the concrete realization.

The knowledge acquired in this seminar enables the students to pass the certification as IBM Certified Database Associate. IBM Austria invites every participant of this seminar to do the certification exam free of charge. For details, see below. Please note that the certification exam is optional and independent of the course assessment.
