Kurzbeschreibung

Big data has turned out to have giant potential, but poses major challenges at the same time.
On the one hand, big data is driving the next stage of technological innovation and scientific
discovery. Accordingly, big data has been called the “gold” of the digital revolution and the
information age. On the other hand, the global volume of data is growing at a pace that seems
to be hard to control. In this light, it has been noted that we are “drowning in a sea of data.”
Faced with these prospects and risks, the world requires a new generation of data specialists.
Data engineering is an emerging profession concerned with big data approaches to data
acquisition, data management, and data analysis. Providing you with up-to-date knowledge
and cutting-edge computational tools, data engineering has everything that it takes to master
the era of big data.
