The module introduces students on how to use Visual C# .net in developing windows and distributed applications. The module will also include web services and XML technology, which can assist in rapid application developments and component development. The areas of client/server applications will also address database developments.
This module will cover the security issues pertaining to most businesses using client/server applications. Students will learn to understand how to implement and control the security architecture, devise effective security policies over the network, and audit for monitoring purposes. Compare the different OS such as NT and UNIX for scalable security features. The module also covers detailed methodologies involving cryptography especially in distributed databases.
This module will concentrate on adding streaming multimedia capacity to Web sites in order to make them more interactive and illustrative for audience. Students will be taught on the advantages of different technologies, choosing and implementing the right strategy, hardware and software for their sites. Concepts and standards discussed will include MPEG, AVI, real audio, VDOLive, TrueSpeech, Multicast Intra nets, VRML and 3D streaming.
This module is to prepare students/IT professionals to be familiar in Linux server environment and management. It is the ideal module for getting a Linux server up and running quickly. It emphasized on practical issues discussed in context of common scenarios when deploying server for the first time. This module aims to provide an understanding of more advanced concepts used in the administration of Linux Operating System.
This module is to develop asp.net web applications using xml and database components. It also covers fair skills in Internet Information Server (lIS), XML and database.
The Relational Database Design course covers the use of Entity Relationship (ER) Modelling in detail through many real life examples, practical business problems and solutions. After several iterations the ER model captures the data requirements and business rules and forms a sound basis for the initial design of a relational database. The second part of the course is about the design process and presents the considerations for creating a normalized, stable, maintainable and well-defined relational database.
