The digital era has created a new benchmark for successful Organization whose reputation today is determined not only on revenue but also on the amount of Data they handle and process. This is where the Data Engineers take the centre stage with the knowledge of the Cloud Computing platforms, tools and techniques for ensuring the assimilation, storage and processing of Big Data. Today, as the human civilization prepares at creating unprecedented value through Artificial Intelligence (AI), the Data Engineers ensure the continuous fuel for AI, i.e. Data. I am excited at the career potential of the Data Engineering graduates coming out of the program and look forward to seeing them contributing to a better future for everyone.

Data Engineering – The fastest growing tech career in the world

Who are Data Engineers?

The necessity to secure and safeguard valuable information poses a prime challenge across organizations as threats to information and data security are ever-persistent, increasingly sophisticated and continuously evolving. This rapidly increasing vulnerability of the digital world to various cyber-attacks has called for the need for a well-trained army of cyber warriors who can predict, detect and mitigate the threats and comply with the regulations to ensure a cyber safe organizational environment.

Cyber security refers to the body of technologies, processes and practices designed to protect network devices, programs and/or data from attack, damage or unauthorized access.

Why should you aspire for a career in Data Engineering?
Data Engineering has emerged as a top career choice in today’s data driven world. The supply demand gap in this rapidly growing sector is galloping, creating excellent opportunities for people with the right skills.
Data Engineering Market Size:

India

$10.6 billion to grow 4 times to $42.3 billion by 2025

Global

$29 billion to grow to $106 billion by 2025

India

will account for 41% of the Global DE market by 2025

What are the different roles and profiles in Data Engineering?

Data Engineer

A data engineer lays down the foundation for data management systems to ingest, integrate and maintain all the data sources. The person has knowledge of databases and understands the needs of the business and its long-time data scalability needs. Tools: SQL, XML, Hive, Pig, Spark etc.

Data science

Database Administrator

A database administrator has extensive knowledge of traditional as well as new-age NoSQL and Cloud databases, and ensures that the data generating and the data ingesting systems are up and running in a live business scenario.

Enterprise Data Architect

The enterprise data architect is responsible for visualizing and designing an organization’s enterprise data management framework that describes the processes used to plan, specify, enable, create, acquire, maintain, use, archive, retrieve, control, and purge data. She has extensive knowledge of database tools, languages like Python, Java and Scala, and distributed systems like Hadoop.

ETL Engineer

The ETL engineer is responsible for maintaining the veracity of the data in the source and target systems. They ensure that the right kind of tools, permission and system pipelines are in place for smooth transfer of the data.

Program Objective

The Data Engineering program at Praxis, in association with Genpact and Latentview Analytics as Knowledge Partners, is designed to create professionals who become immediately productive for the organization. The program equips professionals with the know-how of existing tools and technologies for Data Management and Data Modelling and introduces them to the paradigms of Distributed Systems and Cloud Computing. The participants get to work on a Capstone Project that requires them to migrate data to Big-Data platforms and manage the system on the Cloud.

The overarching objective of the program is to equip students with the tools and techniques that enable them to get their first job in the exciting domain of Data Engineering. We want to give this opportunity to both those executives who are engaged in their careers and do not want to give up their existing assignments, and those who would like to attend physical classes and reap the benefits of a campus environment. This is why this program is available in a dual-learning mode.

Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of the course, the students will learn how to:
Re-engineer Enterprise Data Architecture
Work with relational and NoSQL data models
Create scalable and efficient data warehouses
Work efficiently with massive datasets
Build and interact with a Cloud-based Data Warehouse
Automate and monitor data pipelines
Develop proficiency in Stream Processing using Cloud Data Lake
Solve the appropriate use cases using Big Data technologies

Some examples of capstone projects could be – Migration of a Traditional Data Warehouse to a Cloud Data Lake; Building an Orchestrated Application on the Cloud for managing Sensor-Data; Real-time Streaming Feeds analysis and Visualization using a combination of Kafka, Storm and real-time Data visualization tools.

PGDM is a 2 year full time program aimed at combining the art and science of theoretical learning with the virtues of practical training. 

In order to ensure academic excellence, Praxis sought inputs from XLRI in its initial years. The program at Praxis is, on the one hand, rooted in the principles of academic rigor and discipline, and, on the other, designed to offer multiple touch-points with the industry. 

In response to the changing demand of the industry, and in order to train the students to take up industry-specific roles, Praxis has reorganized its curriculum to target four industry verticals. In addition to opting for one or more specializations, students are given the option of choosing an industry vertical as an area of concentration in the following verticals:
