concepts of the relational database model, the principles
of database design and normalization, and database
administration. In addition, the basic commands and
functions of structured query language (SQL) are used for
data manipulation and extraction, as well as for database
administration. Finally, topics are introduced that relate
enterprise databases to client/server systems, application
programming, web database development, and e-commerce.
Prerequisite: CNSA sophomore standing

department and users in the enterprise. Students learn how
to prepare and maintain documentation for information
technology systems, software, processes, and projects.
The skills learned in this course are integrated into the
other CNSA courses throughout the sophomore year. An
important component of the course is research, readings,
and discussion related to ethical practices in the field of
information technology.
Prerequisite: CNSA sophomore standing

Students will also learn to implement dynamic web sites
using PHP HyperText Preprocessor (PHP) and MySQL.
Topics include configuring PHP and MySQL, reading HTML

This is the first of two capstone courses in the CNSA
curriculum that requires students to rely heavily upon the
knowledge and skills acquired from their entire previous
course experiences. Project teams manage all accounts (i.e.,
user, group, computer, security) in their respective domains.
In designing their enterprise domains, the teams conduct
appropriate research, analyze and evaluate enterprise
requirements and specifications, and document the network
design. Knowledge of the fundamentals of networking
technology, experience supporting a network, or successful
completion of a networking essentials course is required.
Prerequisite: CNSA 266

CNSA 276 (3 Credits)
Practical Applications

The second of two capstone courses in the CNSA curriculum
that requires students to rely heavily upon the knowledge
and skills acquired from their entire previous CNSA course
experiences. This course also includes in-depth research
and examination of selected network applications and the
implementation of those applications in the enterprise.
Students learn how to plan, configure, and administer the
specified application(s), implement the application(s),
document the installation(s), and train the appropriate users
