Course detail

Selected Topics of Software Engineering and Database Systems

FIT-SIDAcad. year: 2019/2020

Advanced software life cycle models; software modeling languages - UML metamodel, the OCL language; model-driven architecture; software architectures; service-oriented architecture; security engineering; object-relational databases and database management systems; multimedia databases; XML databases; similarity search; NoSQL databases, big data and its processing. These topics can change with respect to the main research interests in fields of software engineering and database systems.

Learning outcomes of the course unit

Students get a broad, yet in-depth overview of the field of data mining and knowledge discovery. They get a deeper view mainly in the field related to the topic of their thesis.

Prerequisites

Students should have basic knowledge in software engineering and database systems at the graduate level of Master degree in Software Engineering, Information Systems, Information Technology or related study programmes.
