Most applications today have to be built around databases, hence knowledge of Database technology is crucial to the success of any application, business or organization. This specialization focuses on designing, implementing, maintaining, and managing databases. The primary focus is of course on relational databases, and students become proficient in database programming and SQL (in Oracle and SQL Server).Students of this specialization will also be able to identify and utilize tools to be able to work with the vast amounts of data (covered in data mining). The required course-work will give students an opportunity to study data warehousing, database administration, database security, and Information Security Management. New courses, for example a course on Big Data, are developed and offered from time to time. Hands-on experiences, providing practical experience are a major part of all courses. The culminating experience of this program is the capstone project, which has a practical orientation.This program can be completed completely online, although local students can take some of the classes in a traditional face-to- face format.
