With more than 3 billion Internet users in the world and 1.75 billion cell phone users, that is a whole lot of BIG DATA to collect, organize, and analyze. Companies are increasingly looking for data masters who know how to turn these data into valuable business insights. Data engineers and data scientists are the two most sought-after professionals in big data projects. Data Engineers are the data specialists who prepare the 'big data' infrastructure to be analyzed by Data Scientists. They are software engineers who design, build, integrate data from various resources, and manage big data. This course provides a headstart to graduates who want to become data engineers by equipping them with specialised skills to work with big data and real-time analytics.
