This paper proposes that a branch of engineering, perhaps best called "data engineering", be established by creating a "College of Data Engineering" in the Institution of Engineers, Australia, and that formal tertiary education in the discipline be sponsored by the Institution.

The scope and flavour of "data engineering" are illustrated in this paper, and course topics for tertiary study are tentatively sketched to give an idea of possible sub-disciplines.
