Course Information

You will study the software engineering process in both creating and working with large and complex data sets, acquiring the knowledge and experience of tools and techniques that are necessary to be a successful Data Engineer in a range of environments. The focus of the programme is on the practical application of these skills and tools, with the underpinning theories used within this context.

Learning, teaching and assessment methods focus on providing students with engaging and contemporary materials that link theory to practice and require students to take a critical perspective on both.
