42893 Data Engineering Foundations



This microcredential provides a comprehensive overview of the foundations of data engineering – a set of infrastructure platforms and capabilities that allows organisations to acquire, transform, store and curate data with the ultimate goal of realising value from data. Taking a broad perspective, the microcredential helps learners from diverse backgrounds to be better informed when working with data engineering teams or planning for data engineering as part of their team’s projects or operations. Beginning with an overview of a typical data value chain, the microcredential then introduces data infrastructure and data pipelines, alongside examples of implementation technologies. A range of issues around data quality, security, monitoring and governance are explored, with the ultimate goal of demonstrating how data engineering helps organisations extract and realise value from their data assets.
