Employers can expect graduating students can navigate the complexities of deploying secure, reliable and saleable persistence for a world of IoT, mobile and browser-based applications.

In this course you will gain key skills in database development including how to analyse project requirements to produce component specialisations, build using rapid application development (RAD) tools, and use structured query language (SQL) to define, create, and manipulate database structures. You will also discover how to model data objects, data processes, and preferred system solutions.

Successful completion of this course will qualify you to work as a systems analyst or assistant database designer or developer across a variety of business contexts.
