Data modelling

With data modelling to operational databases

Has data modelling piqued your interest and would you now like to learn the basics in this field? Our Data Modelling programme offers you just this. During the four programme sessions, you will gain insights into the principles of data modelling. The focus is on modelling and editing data and developing and implementing data models. The programme is a preliminary course for the various higher professional courses in information technology. So after taking part, you will not only have basic knowledge of data modelling: the door to more in-depth computer science training is also open to you.

Understand and implement data models

After the programme, you should be able to understand existing data models and introduce new models. Accordingly, the learning objectives are: to interpret a given data model, coordinate with users, adapt models, implement and test data models and document the processes around data modelling. Record and analyse clients’ requests for information and information resources. to specify the data management and develop, implement and test a data model.

What you learn in the data modelling programme

  • Demonstrate the relationship between user needs and the solution derived from them
  • Adapt and implement data model
  • Consider data and access protection during implementation
  • Create forms for data manipulation and data presentation
  • Check data model for correct implementation of user needs
  • Document the data model and pay attention to maintainability and traceability
  • Record and analyse information needs and data storage requirements together with clients, and define and document data protection and security requirements
  • Create ER diagrams and identify missing information or clarify redundancies
  • Complete data model
  • Review the data model together with the clients and make any necessary adjustments
  • Develop the required database schema for the data model, document it and implement it in a test environment
  • Generate test data and test database

Pre-course for computer science training

The data modelling programme at IBAW provides you with a good foundation to tackle more in-depth computer science training. Knowledge in data modelling is helpful for computer scientists who want to deal with data in the future. Our programme serves as preparation for further training concluding with a Swiss federal diploma or at a higher technical college in the field of information technology. It is regarded as a preliminary course for various further training courses in the higher professional training in IT. You can see which options are open to you after attending the Data Modelling programme in the following section. The certificate handed out to you at the end of the course opens many doors.

These follow-up courses are available

At the IBAW you cannot only learn the basics. We offer various training and development courses in the field of information technology, with which you can obtain a federal certificate of proficiency or an HF degree (higher technical college). These further training courses are offered by the IBAW:
