The course aims at giving an overview of Data Engineering foundational concepts. It is tailored for 1st and 2nd year Msc students and PhDs who would like to strengthen their fundamental understanding of Data Engineering, i.e., Data Modelling, Collection, and Wrangling.
- Lecturers will be in class unless announced otherwise, but they will be recorded.
- Practices will mostly be in class unless announced otherwise, but they will be recorded.
- Lectures are in Room 1008
- It is not always lecture/practice sequences every week. That is, we might have two lectures in the same week; in some other weeks we can have two practice sessions in a row. Have a look at the tentative syllabus below. Any changes will be announced at least one session ahead and on the course Moodle page.
- Slots are
* Mon. 16.15 - 18.00 weeks 2-16 * Thu. 10.15 - 12.00 weeks 2-16
- Link for practice session (log into courses to see link) , will be used in case of online sessions.
- Material for classes and practices will be listed on Moodle.
