FTEC4001 Advanced Database Technologies

Course Code and Name: FTEC4001 Advanced Database Technologies
Course Objectives:

To support high-speed online payments, one important issue is efficiency and another important issue is reliability for millions of payments to be transferred among accounts. This course introduces the advanced topics in database systems. The topics include query processing and optimization, transaction management, concurrency control, recovery systems, parallel databases, and distributed database systems.
Course Outcomes:

At the completion of this course, students should be able to:
1. Conduct data analysis using query processing techniques over a large amount of data.
2. Achieve high efficiency by using advanced parallel and distributed querying processing techniques.
3. Build reliable systems to ensure all processing tasks are correct based on transaction processing, concurrency control.
4. Maintain a heavy system by understanding how to recovery from possible systems failures
