About the course

Data engineers build the secure cyber-physical hardware and software infrastructure and systems that drives the collection, transmission, storage and analysis of data. This infrastructure, which ranges from the Internet of Things to cloud storage and computation, enables organisations to innovate and optimise their services using broadband networking and powerful computing.

In the Data Engineering major you will learn the theoretical foundations, entrepreneurial values and professional skills required to build secure data platforms of all sizes. You will develop skills in research and advanced practice, gain in-depth knowledge in one or more areas of specialisation, and learn to embrace innovation in order to achieve excellence in engineering.

The current specialisations offered in the Data Engineering major include: cybersecurity, data analytics, real-time systems (internet of things), networks, and image processing, multimedia and pattern recognition.

Course overview

The program takes a four staged approach which includes studio based learning.

The Fundamentals

The Fundamentals Stage will give you core skills in the sciences, as well as in the foundations of data engineering. This stage includes two semesters of practical studios that extend and embed what you have learned in class, as well as the chance to pursue elective subjects from any UTS faculty.

Applications

In the Applications Stage you will undertake intensive study in the data engineering specialty of your choice. The studios in this stage are designed to enhance your theoretical knowledge and increase your engineering capabilities through interaction with University and industry experts.

Honours

The Honours Stage includes a year-long Honours Project. You can choose to conduct leading-edge research or undertake an innovative project that could lead to start-up opportunities.

Professional Development

In parallel with your progress through these three stages, you’ll also undertake a professional development module that builds your capabilities in areas such as entrepreneurship and project management. This module it has its own learning outcomes, and includes two semesters of studios that will connect you with industry mentors and emphasise innovation.
