Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Students learn the principles of information systems, solving bulk data processing, records, etc. Students will gain an overview of available database systems from the desktop SQL Server, including analytical tools and master the methods and procedures of small and medium-scale database tasks with an emphasis on database modeling , UML, teamwork, and output to the Internet.

Teaching methods

Project work


Subject Information Systems determines the profile of the graduates in the branch of Automatic Control and Engineering Informatics. Its objective is to introduce students to the principles of creating data structures and the data processing, data recording and system problem solving. Student will deal with methods and procedures for database systems of small and middle range with emphasis on the team work. A part of the subject is also implementations for database throught Internet.
