Data Engineering
Summer School

September 9th - 13th, 2024

Summer School 2023 - Creatives (2).png

Learn data engineering from the pros

Sure, you can learn data engineering on your own. Or from professors. But with both approaches, you'll miss the opportunity to learn what real data engineering in business contexts looks like. Our instructors are data engineering consultants, with years of hands-on experience. We can launch your career and put you ahead of the curve 🚀. Our next Summer School is for you if you want to become a data engineer!

After 5 days of new experiences which go well beyond the theory, you will be able to add significant contributions to data engineering pipelines, whether you do so in teams of entirely by yourself. The skills you'll acquire and tools you'll learn, will serve you throughout your entire career. 

We provide the foundations for junior and medior levels, though you should be familiar with the basics of Python. This means that people with none to some data engineering experience are welcome.

Early Bird discount ends on July 15th, 2024


Are you (working for) a SME in Vlaams Gewest? 

Use the “kmo-portefeuille” subsidy!

Data Minded Academy courses are eligible for a subsidy from the “kmo-portefeuille”: small and medium-sized enterprises located in the Flemish Region can receive a subsidy of up to €7500 per year for services offered by registered providers, like Data Minded.


Check whether you meet the conditions and how much subsidy you can receive. You can also start the application procedure there.

Calculation example: 

A small company can be reimbursed 30% of the Summer School, so that it does not cost €1600, but only €1120 for 1 employee. Other discounts, like the early bird discount, still apply.


Making people more capable data engineers 🚀

What do participants say?


The Winter School was a good amount of challenging. A lot of the concepts were still new despite having gone through the material beforehand. I enjoyed all the exercises, and learned a lot.
