C603-Research Methodology for Masters Students - (Dr.Abdulqader)
module aims to provide students a systematic understanding of research methods
and a conceptual understanding which enables them to analyze and evaluate
published research. It provides an introduction to research methods and designs
relevant to computing areas. The course will focus on an introduction to
various research designs including experimental and non-experimental, as well
as quantitative and qualitative research methods. Preparing research proposal,
paper, presentation and thesis will be covered.
In addition, the course will focus on providing a practical
understanding of several statistical tools used in computing research. The
emphasis will be on knowing when to use the various tests, what they measure,
and how to interpret results. To achieve the course aim, different teaching
strategies will be applied such as lectures, case study, problem solving and so
on. No prerequisite course for this course is needed.
This course aims to equip students with
principles and knowledge of advanced topics in database systems management such
as database security, transaction management, distributed database, replication
and mobile databases, object oriented database, and web database.
