Database Design & Data Visualisation (Module)


The Database Design and Data Visualisation module adopts an applied learning approach to identify opportunities and work with data through the lens of the relational database model. The aim of this module is to enable the learner to interface with standard industrial systems and collect and interpret datasets for data-driven intelligence. Therefore learners will acquire the skills necessary to design and develop database systems, collect, clean, visualise and interpret data rooted in best data analysis practice.

The 2-Year Master of Science (MSci) in Digitalisation of Manufacturing programme covers essential elements of digitalisation of manufacturing and their application in practice.
The goal of the master’s is to provide an expert level appraisal of relevant technologies, tools and techniques in a range of relevant disciplines, so that the Learner can assess current trends, engage with specialist professionals, and identify the potential benefits of digitalisation of manufacturing and embracing industry 4.0
Credits towards the 2-Year Masters Programme can also be earned through our Micro-Credentialing process. Candidates can attend one or more stand alone modules in response to a specific business need, or with the intention of gradually completing the full programme on an extended schedule.

The Master's modules include:
1. Database Design & Data Visualisation *
2. Cyber-Physical Systems & IoT *
3. Manufacturing Automation & Robotics
4. Data Analytics & Machine Learning
5. Integrated Database Systems
6. Digitalisation of Production
*This is running as a stand alone module of the Master of Science (MSci) in Digitalisation of Manufacturing programme

Content includes

On completion of this module the learner will/should be able to;
  • Analyse the application of database technologies and data visualisation in a relevant industrial context.
  • Design a database application, including data schemas and data repositories, to capture and store appropriate data streams.
  • Collect, clean, structure and transform raw data from industry systems into data repositories.
  • Implement the data definition, data manipulation and data control language components of
  • Structured Query Language in an open source relational database implementation.
  • Represent pattern, trends and correlations through appropriate data visualisation techniques, relevant to the learners industrial practice.
