The course is designed around a data modeling framework shown in the figure. Each lecture/assignment will focus on an aspect of the data modeling framework.
We emphasize the holistic view of modeling in order to motivate and stress the relevance of individual components and building blocks, disseminate the obtained competence (see the course learning obejctives), and make them applicable for a broad spectrum of engineering problems in e.g. biomedical engineering, chemistry, electrical engineering, and informatics.
