The Lecture Series on Practical Data Engineering will feature presentations by distinguished speakers from industry and academia on the topic of data engineering. We will cover topics on the application of data engineering in industrial setups as well as system level advancements in data engineering research.


The agenda will be finalized until the start of the semester (25.10.2021).


General information

Time and Location: The presentations will be held in a hybrid fashion. Some of them may be conducted fully online, which we will announce beforehand.

You can access the course on Moodle.

The course is graded and has 3 ECTS.


Lecture summary

You have to write a summary for one lecture. Depending on the number of participants, this will be done in groups. Each lecture will be assigned to one person or group.

All summaries will be published on the course website. The summary should give a quick and engaging overview of the talk (10-15 min reading time). We will ask the presenters to review your summary and help you with questions.

Individual Poster Project

You have to prepare an A1 poster, with one of the following contents depending on your study level. You will be able to present your poster at the final session.

Bachelor Students: Based on one or more of the lectures, you can either prepare a technology landscape or explain a data science or data engineering process. Both should be as detailed as possible.

Master Students: To extend technology or methodology presented in one or multiple of the lectures, you should prepare a research project proposal. The poster should highlight goal, problem, and solution of your proposal and the connection to the lecture.
