Centering on the problems of both working professionals as well as researchers in the critical field of data engineering, the Southern Methodist University program in Data Engineering serves the needs of both full-time and part-time students.



Data Engineering is the discipline concerned with the design of systems and use of analysis methods for the acquisition, storage, management, security, and processing of data. 

Data Engineering incorporates a number of different fields including acquisition and storage system design, analytics, machine learning, statistics, security, and database management.

The Bobby B. Lyle School of Engineering at Southern Methodist University traces its roots to 1925, when the Technical Club of Dallas, a professional organization of practicing engineers, petitioned SMU to fulfill the need for an engineering school in the Southwest. The Lyle School of Engineering has grown to become a thriving school, with graduate programs in a variety of areas.
