The Databases Group of the Department of Computer Science develops and coordinates the teaching offer and research activities in the area of Databases and Information Systems.
Current research focuses of the department are, among others, in the areas of Big Data Management and Data Science.
In addition to the compulsory Bachelor's courses Databases 1 and Databases 2, the members of the department offer various (elective) courses in the department's Bachelor's and Master's programmes as well as in the Data Science programme run jointly with the MN department and other departments.
Laboratories and Infrastructure
Courses in the field of databases are held either in the Database and Business Information Systems Laboratories D14/1.12 and D15/2.02 or as a notebook internship. For some courses the Big Data Cluster of the Department is used.
