The ANU offered its Graduate Certificate in Data Engineering for the first time in 2020 and is currently undertaking research to ensure its postgraduate courses in this field are being pitched at the right level in terms of pre-existing data knowledge & programming experience.

Data Engineers develop new ways to store and access large amounts of data at scale. They design and build data pipelines to transform data into formats that make it more accessible and useful for the business or organisations they work in. The ANU College of Engineering & Computer Science is at the forefront of developing courses that equip data engineers with the critical skills and knowledge needed to turn unstructured data into actionable strategic insights.  

The ANU has commissioned Faster Horses - an independent market research company – to survey prospective students of the course (which was offered solely online in 2020 due to the challenges of COVID). If you are in a software engineering role, or another role that includes regularly undertaking data analysis & have some practical programming interest or experience - and you have a strong interest in growing your skills in data engineering through postgraduate study - the ANU wants to hear from you!
