This is the first course in database management systems. Students will learn (1) how to
use a relational databases and (2) how to build key components of a relational
database. Students will also learn some advance topics, such as query optimization
and transaction management, etc. Since this is a CSIE course, it will
place more emphasis on the systems aspects of the database (2/3 of the
course materials) rather than in the applications aspects of database systems
(1/3 of the course materials). This course will be taught with a mixture of English/Chinese, and students are encouraged to ask questions either in Chinese or English.
