Data Engineering Apprenticeship Engineer

The “Data Engineering” apprenticeship engineering course meets the growing needs of industrialists in the data processing sector, from data capture to visualisation, via software architectures, connected objects and artificial intelligence

The digital transformation leads to the creation of billions of information captured, recorded, processed and then exploited for the purpose of monitoring, improving and innovating any process. It has therefore become essential to train engineers specialising in big data technologies, from storage to analysis of large quantities of structured and especially unstructured data. Digital companies must then exploit these massive data flows and offer new services to improve decision-making processes. The “Data Engineering” course meets all these new needs in the field of data, more specifically for data engineers, data professionals preparing the big data infrastructure.
