Data Engineering is an area of data science that focuses on the practical application of data processing and analysis. Data engineers concentrate on big data applications and harvesting. Their function does not involve much research or experimental design. Instead, they are out where the rubber meets the road (in case of self-driving vehicles), establishing interfaces and processes for flow and access to knowledge.
