Course description: Course objectives:
Qualifying students for individual projecting, developing and implementation of relational databases in engineering domain. The course should give knowledge about projecting databases from beginners to intermediate level. Such a knowledge level should prepare the future engineers to be the active participants in processes of developing and management of the most complex product data information systems in medium and large production companies.

Enrolment requirements and required entry competences for the course:
No prerequisites

Student responsibilities:
Lecture and exercise attendance. For final grade student has to pass preliminary written exam, has to complete a project and present the seminar on particular issue from literature.

Grading and evaluation of student work over the course of instruction and at a final exam:
One preliminary written exam during the lectures, assessment of presentation of seminar work, assessment of project and student activity during the project work.

Methods of monitoring quality that ensure acquisition of exit competences:
Student survey

Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to (learning outcomes):
to independently design and develop a database architecture (structure) of medium complexity
to prepare, plan nad organize tasks within the projects of developing components of complex information systems
to evaluate the investments in development and/or purchasing of information systems (PLM, ERP and similar)
to criticaly justify and verify the processes of customization and implementation of PLM, ERP and similar systems
to manage the processes of maintenance and upgrading of existing information systems in production companies
