IEOR 115: Industrial and Commercial Data Systems
Lecture: MW 11am-12pm, 3106 Etcheverry Hall.
This course is geared for IEOR juniors and seniors. Other majors are welcome to enroll however please see the Note on Registration (below).
Lectures describe how databases are designed and implemented, with an emphasis on industrial and commercial applications. We focus on the relational database model and learn the mathematics of relational algebra an Structured Query Language (SQL). In addition to homework and exams, students gain hands on experience with database software Microsoft Access in the laboratory sessions. Students work in teams to design and implement working prototype databases for local organizations.
Note on Registration for IEOR 115
Due to the size of our laboratory, the class is limited to 50 students. Priority is given to graduating IEOR seniors (who are guaranteed admission and are given course entry codes in advance).
Other students are welcome to come to the first 2 classes: since it's difficult to determine the numbers at registration time, we will give a simple entrance exam to all interested students. Don't worry about studying for this, it's not a test of knowledge but of eligibility and enthusiasm. Remaining class entry codes will be given out in the second class. I realize this is inconvenient but it's the only fair solution.
For general enrollment information please contact Anayancy Paz, the IEOR Student Affairs Officer, at:anayancypaz[at]ieor[dot]berkeley[dot]edu
