CODE's secret sauce? It's wide an diverse network.

A campus for the digital economy

Connecting the world of academia and experienced corporates with the culture of startups and Internet entrepreneurs, the CODE campus is a unique place for young talents to bring their ideas to life.

CODE’s way of teaching is as close to real life as it gets. Our pedagogy revolves around learning by doing. Our students develop hard skills in their respective bachelor program but also competencies that are key for our century such as collaboration, learning to learn, or resilience.

Integrated into the new economy world

There is no better place for a Digital Pioneer than an innovation campus, where you can connect with other entrepreneurs and find an inspiring atmosphere that helps your ideas flow and grow. In Factory Berlin, we found a great partner for the perfect CODE campus.

Part of Germany’s thriving startup scene

Unlike a typical university, CODE will be located inside one of the largest startup campuses in Europe – a newly renovated building of Factory Berlin.

As a student at CODE, you will be part of a curated community that brings together the best and brightest, who are passionate about creating the world of tomorrow. Its members represent the cutting edge of innovation: freelance developers, designers and strategists, startups, and global corporations as well as investors and leading influencers from politics and science

Today, Factory Berlin is the home to local heroes like SoundCloud, industry icons like Twitter, Uber and Pinterest, as well as a host of fast-growing startups like Freeletics, unu motors and Limemakers.
CODE will be part of a building in the Kreuzberg area, Central Berlin, currently under renovation.

As an enrolled student, you will be a member of this community (we pay your monthly membership fee) and gain access to other members, its partners, an inspiring work environment, and exclusive events, as well as all the amenities the membership has to offer.

Berlin is one of the world’s fastest-growing startup ecosystems and receives more venture capital investment than any other city in Europe at the moment. Being Germany’s digital capital, it is also Europe’s current hotspot for digital innovation.
And the perfect place for CODE.

Our mission is to empower entrepreneurs to make a real impact and create the world of tomorrow.Udo Schloemer, Founder and CEO Factory Berlin

Building a community of equals

At CODE we don’t define ourselves by our titles. Instead, you will become part of a diverse group of students, lecturers, professors and network partners, where everyone seeks to learn something new every day and support each other.

Supporting the young talents of tomorrow

The Code+Design Initiative was founded by the team of CODE to support young people to find out more about a possible career in coding or designing.

Diversity over uniformity

Whether it’s the students we seek or the ways they learn and grow – we want CODE to be a multifaceted place for men and women from all back­grounds. So we can learn from each other.

At CODE you will have ample opportunity to question your stereotypes and enjoy the fact that all members of our community meet on an equal footing. In discussions, we value ideas over hierarchy. That does not mean your ideas won’t get challenged. Be prepared to have intense arguments. But in the end, the best idea wins and it doesn’t matter if it came from a student, a professor or a big-shot CEO.

CODE is a place to learn, support, evolve and make mistakes. What is most important is your willingness to give it your all. If you are intimidated because you perceive the industry as male-dominated, what a better place to meet other motivated women who had the same reservations and did it anyway! If you are interested and passionate about what CODE has to offer, take the plunge.Sarah Kurten, future CODE student

Connecting with talent from day one

Led by our professors and mentors, our students are exposed to real life experience in interdisciplinary teams. Our partners are invited to contribute to this “learning by doing” philosophy and can provide cases as well as detach experts.

  • Real-life cases for real-life learning

    We’re dedicated to teaming up with best in class players to focus on the most relevant technologies and give our students the opportunity to learn concrete and applicable skills through challenging projects.

  • It’s all about people

    At CODE, we value soft and social skills as much as the capacity to use cutting-edge technologies. People are key, and we empower our students how to be team players.

  • Foster smart interactions

    Our students and partners are encouraged to meet through regular and constructive meet-ups, demos and even more classical occasions (i.e. internship and job fairs).
