Course summary

Learn to use and combine Data Engineering skills to become a data-oriented software solution developer.

Overview

Data Engineering is a major growth area within both the commercial and public sectors, and there is a recognised shortage of professionals that have the required range of Data Engineering knowledge and skills. This online MSc Data Engineering programme addresses this shortage.

The programme is aimed at graduates and practitioners with a background in business, quantitative science, or computing who wish to develop into effective Data Engineers with the business understandings and analytical, statistical and computing skills to contribute to this vital area for contemporary commercial and public sectors.

Edinburgh Napier University has excellent research and knowledge transfer links with many local, national and international organisations in Data Engineering related areas.

The acquisition of knowledge and skills on the programme will give students a critical understanding of the tools and technologies involved in the analysis, design, development, testing, evaluation and modification of Data Engineering solution; enable them to select and evaluate appropriate tools for the collection, processing and presentation of complex and diverse data sets, and critically review an organisation’s data needs and make appropriate and measurable recommendations on the use of Data Engineering techniques.

Delivered online (part-time), this MSc is ideally suited to individuals who intend to balance their personal and professional commitments with their studies.

Course details

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.

The programme will benefit people wanting either to change career and start working in data solution development, or to upskill from being a software engineer or data scientist to the combined role of Data Engineer. As the programme is paced to suit the learner, the MSc in Data Engineering will also support learners coming back to education.

Careers

Participation in this course will support your aspirations either to change career or start work in the area of Data Engineering.
