This is where Database Systems come in the picture. Database Systems are software which are specifically designed to collect, organise and interpret the data. The course on Database Systems enables an individual to handle these Database Systems and further dear conclusions from the raw data.

The course which is provided in all major universities at the undergraduate and post graduate level equips one with the hand of skills of playing with data which comes as a significant job folio in scientific, business, government, and industrial organisations. Any computer professional must be well aware opf the basic of the database systems in order to fully utilise his or her potential and be of maximum benefit to the organisation. This course focuses on key concepts of Database Management which makes for a blooming career in almost every industry.

Upon completion, a student will be able to demonstrate an in-depth understanding of the rational algebra and related concepts, to correctly construct rational algebra and rational calculus, to reformulate an English language query statement into a formal machine query which the system could interpret and execute. The course effectively ensures that a student after completion of the course will be able to function on Database Management Systems.

The course is spread in different topics which completely cover the elements of Database Systems such as: data definition, concurrency control and recovery, database programming interfaces database design theory, data modelling and manipulation languages, query processing, storage and indexing techniques and optimization. The thorough extensive study of Database systems is enough to give a head start to an individual.

Further the completion of course requires the student to submit number of assignments related to the subject, which will test the knowledge of the student which he or she has acquired by learning the course.
