1. Draw an ER Diagram for the following scenario: A university consists of a number of
departments. Each department offers several courses. A number of modules make up each
course. Students enrols in a particular course and take modules towards the completion of
that course. Each module is taught by a lecturer from the appropriate department, and
each lecturer tutors a group of students.
2. Draw an ER Diagram for the following scenario : We want to represent information about
products in a database. Each product has a description, a price and a supplier. Suppliers
have addresses, phone numbers, and names. Each address is made up of a street address,
a city, and a postcode.
3. Draw an ER Diagram for the following scenario : A database will be made to store
information about patients in a hospital. On arrival, each patient’s personal details (name,
address, and telephone number) are recorded where possible, and they are given an
admission number. They are then assigned to a particular ward (Accident and Emergency,
Cardiology, Oncology, etc.). In each ward there are a number of doctors and nurses. A
patient will be treated by one doctor and several nurses over the course of their stay, and
each doctor and nurse may be involved with several patients at any given time.
4. Draw an ER Diagram for the following scenario: The company you work for wants to
digitize their time cards. You have been asked to design the database for submitting and
approving time cards. Draw the database ER diagram with the following information:
A timecard should have hours worked and date submitted
Each timecard is associated with exactly one employee
Each timecard should have a unique id
Each timecard has a status: it is either approved, not approved, or pending
Each employee has a unique id
Each employee has a name and address.
Each employee submits a time card every pay period. i.e. In 1 year, they will submit multiple time
Each employee either has direct deposit or physical check as their method of payment
Each employee is associated with exactly one manager
Each manager has a unique id and a name
Each manager is in charge of multiple employees
Each manager approves time cards for multiple employees
5. There exists a database of people who take measurements of trees in various locations. A
person may take measurements of multiple trees, and each tree may be measured multiple
times throughout a number of days. For each and every tree we need to collect
information about to what species does it belong to, what are the latitude and longitude of
the tree. We also need to maintain an identification number for each and every tree.
Whoever the person taking the measurements of the tree , that persons name,unique
identification number,address and role need to be maintained. Whatever the
measurements taken need to maintained separately with the details of what the diameter
and height of the tree , when exactly the measurement has been taken. For each and
measurement taken we have to maintain a record. We also need to correlate with who is
the person who has taken the measurement. Depict an ER diagram for the above scenario.
