The difference between a data scientist and a data science engineer is that data scientists are people who solve problems with data, and they do it well. They are not necessarily specialists in programming languages or databases, but they can use whatever tools are best for the job. 

Whereas, on the other hand, data science engineers are specialists in programming languages and databases. They have good knowledge of the technology they use to create applications from scratch, but less understanding of the underlying principles governing how it works.

If you are clear with the difference of what these two professions hold for themselves and want to master data science domain, then you can go for Intellipaat’s MS in Data Science training.
