In addition the course will explore current topics in database research and development as well as advanced applications of database systems.
Univ: To be admitted you must have (or equivalent) 90 ECTS-credits including 60 ECTS-credits in Computing Science or two years of completed studies within a study programme (120 ECTS-credits). In both cases, including at least 7.5 ECTS-credits in Database Management (e.g. 5DV119) and the course C-programming and Unix (e.g. 5DV088). A Bachelor's degree with a major in Computer Science is considered to be equivalent.
Proficiency in English equivalent to Swedish upper Secondary course English A/5. Where the language of instruction is Swedish, applicants must prove proficiency in Swedish to the level required for basic eligibility for higher studies.
Applicants in some programs at Umeå University have guaranteed admission to this course. The number of places for a single course may therefore be limited.
