I had recently discovered Data Engineering before trying out this course and thought I would try it out to see if it was a possible route for me after University. The course covers all of the information you need to know for Data Engineering in Formula 3 but not only processing the data as there are many other roles which you might not have thought of which Data Engineer has to do. Overall a great course!
Highly recommended!
