If I study computer engineering, can I be a big data engineer?

YES, you can be a big data engineer after pursuing computer engineering. As a program coordinator, i have seen various students shifting from IT/Engineering to Data Science background and being very good in their work as well.

Here are a few reasons of why is this shift to data engineer field good—

  1. Computer Engineers are already well informed about the programming tools and languages which is a plus point when you enter data science field.

  2. Computer engineers have a good exposure to solving real life problems, which is in turn the most important goal of being a data engineer.

  3. More than any other field, shifting from computer backed field provides you immense help in getting into data engineering and also make you excel in your field.
