Online Workshop: Database Management Systems for Geotechnical Engineers

The future of geotechnical engineering is taking shape, the 2nd of 3 workshop series leading up to machine learning.

Data processing with python for civil engineers

The role of databases in data analytics cannot be overstated; databases facilitate efficient, secure and accurate information storage and retrieval across multiple users and platforms. As such, proficiency in database design and knowledge of SQL programming are essential skills for the modern engineer. This course is designed to help you develop these skills.

In this twenty hour workshop, you will learn how to design simple relational databases and populate the databases with data. Next, you will learn the basics of the most popular query language, SQL to interact with both Sqlite and Postgres databases. Finally, you will use the databases you create to connect to powerful reporting platforms such as PowerBI, Tableau and Metabase with civil engineering and geotechnical applications.

By taking this course, you gain life-time access to the course’s Discourse server where you can post questions and browse for answers and advice from industry experts.
