Introduction to Databases

New York University (NYU) via edX Microbachelors

Overview

This program will teach you everything you need to know to start using a relational database management system in the Web, the Cloud, and embedded applications. Database development and administration skills are required in most Information Technology, Software Engineering, Cybersecurity, and Computer Science jobs. The courses utilize the open-source relational database MySQL. MySQL and it's open-source fork MariaDB are used in millions of web apps to persist the application data and provide query processing. Students gain valuable hands-on experience programming SQL queries in the labs. In addition to the applied SQL labs, you will also gain an understanding of relational databases in general, learning how to design your database, so it's robust and efficient. Furthermore, you will harness that power by learning SQL and using it to build databases, populate them with data, and query that data through extensive hands-on practices.

With the successful completion of this program, passing all courses with a 70% or better via the verified (paid) track, you’ll not only receive a certificate highlighting your achievement from NYU, but also have the option to collect real college credit from an edX credit partner (included in the price!) that you can count towards a pursuit of a bachelor’s degree.
