At WPI, we offer two core databases courses, namely,
our beginning DBMS course
(CS542 - Database Management Systems)
which requires no prior database knowledge and followed
this CS561 course, which is in effect the direct sequel to CS542.
In addition, we have offerings of a variety of
special topics courses
centered around particular themes or foci.
Special topics courses offered in the past have included:
Sensor and Stream Data Management
Databases and the Web.
Theoretical Foundations of Databases
