DescriptionThe data engineering programme covers a range of topics in the field. Today’s software systems manage large amounts of traditional and non-traditional data including temporal, spatial, spatio-temporal, and multidimensional data.
The programme focuses on technologies for managing this kind of data covering conceptual modelling and database design, data models, query languages, query processing and optimization, and indexing. The programme features traditional courses as well as projects that typically involve construction and experimentation with software prototypes.
The programme is managed by the Center for Data-Intensive Systems, Daisy at the Department of Computer Science. Daisy is one of the world’s leading research groups within spatial, temporal and spatio-temporal data management and business intelligence (data warehousing and data mining). Student projects are usually directly related to the current research conducted at Daisy. In addition, projects are done in collaboration with local and national industry.
Career OpportunitiesA number of graduates continue their careers as PhD students; others become system developers in their home countries or in Denmark.
While the programme provides strong theoretical foundations, it also emphasizes entrepreneurial values, enabling students to become highly valued staff at their future employer, both in industry and academia.
