Journey into the realm of becoming a Data Engineer and apply your basic Python knowledge of working with data. You will exercise various techniques in Python to extract data in multiple file formats from different sources, transform it into specific datatypes, and then prepare it for loading it into a database. You will perform these tasks with the help of multiple hands-on labs using Jupyter notebooks and IBM Watson Studio.

On completion of this course, you will have the confidence to employ Python for data engineering tasks such as extracting large data sets from multiple sources through the use of webscraping and APIs, transforming the data and making it ready for gaining valuable business insights.

NOTE: This course is not intended to teach you Python basics and has limited instructional content. Rather, it is intended for you to apply prior Python knowledge.

PRE-REQUISITE: The Python Basics for Data Science course from IBM is a pre-requisite for this project course. Before taking this course, please ensure that you have either completed the Python Basics for Data Science from IBM or have equivalent proficiency in working with Python and data.
