Good to know that you're actively exploring career options in data engineering. It's too early to say; but I'd advise you to focus on the following -

  • Build a strong base in programming language. Python, Scala, R would be your top choices
  • Build expertise in SQL
  • Start experimenting with various database systems [MySQL, Mongo, Redis etc.]
  • Start exploring cloud technologies - Azure, Google Cloud and AWS
  • Develop above average communication skills (written and spoken)


With these, you should be able to find an opportunity really quickly; right out of the college. Data Engineering is an emerging career path - and I see huge opportunities in it in the next few years. 

PS: It's incredibly hard to find data engineers; so better be one of those. Companies are willing to pay handsome salary to high-quality data engineers.
