Short description

Data Engineering topics are essential components of successful data products and data projects. Students learn the requirements for running successful data engineering pipelines, the key methods, and both the theoretical foundations and practical implementation of different methods and applications.

Module contents

The digitalization of processes and environments is difficult challenge for computer scientists. Software development is hereby not the primary problem, rather the professional processing and analysis of different datatypes and volumes. For this purpose it is essential to have a certain fundamental experience in the area of data engineering.
This module provides you a practical introduction in elemental data engineering. The focus is on an good overall view and a clean methodology; proofs and details of the methods are not part of this course and are expected to be discussed in later course. The content of the lecture is applied practically by the participants in several projects.

The following contents will be discussed in the module:

Storing Structured Data:  
  Big Data / Hadoop etc.  

Transforming Data:
  ETL  Jobs
  Cleaning  (Noise removal, Outlier detection, Interpolation) 

Sourcing Data:
  Web crawling, Web scraping 
  Other Sources  

Querying Data:
  Advanced Queries
  Query Optimization
  Distributed Queries  

Ingesting Data:
  Batch vs. Real-Time Data Streams

Accompanying Assignments
The lecture is accompanied by practical assignments containing of implementations in python and related tools and libraries with real-world datasets. About the half of the semester the students work in small groups on individual projects, which are presented at the end of the semester.
