A study program for Digital Pioneers

Have you ever heard of a university integrated into a community space and surrounded by hundreds of entrepreneurs, successful startups and inspiring Digital Pioneers?

Integrated into the digital world: Our highest goal is to shape the learning environment our students have always dreamed of.

Meet our founding partners

Together with our partners, we build the necessary bridge to a practical learning environment. Led by our professors, students gain important experience in real digital projects, with the focus on the learning experience.

There is no better place than a community space for a university like CODE. Thomas Bachem, Chancellor of CODE

So much more than just a campus!

The CODE campus is part of Factory Berlin; the ball pit is just one of the highlights.

Quite possibly the most modern campus in the world

Whether you feel like working in the library, on the terrace in the sun or in one of the bookable private meeting rooms: You can work wherever you like.

An outstanding building

On five floors, Factory Görlitzer Park is the size of almost three American football fields. The whole building will blow your mind. Several architects and a great interior design team spent months building this unique place. We promise: You will love it!

Borders only exist in your mind

Imagine leaving the campus of your university and being right in the middle of the action, surrounded by successful startups. That’s what happens at CODE. Meet at the café and exchange ideas!

Café, ball pit or library?

We cannot really explain it; you have to see it with your own eyes, because Factory is both a work space and a playground. Our students Sitan and Carolin get to decide every day where they’d like to work (apparently they’ve chosen the library here).

Building a community of equals

At CODE, you will become part of a diverse group of students, lecturers, professors and network partners forming a team where everyone seeks to learn something new every day and to support each other in various ways.

Community and Events

There are a lot of interesting opportunities to meet us in person and to understand who we are and what we’re dreaming of.

Supporting the talents of tomorrow

The Code+Design Initiative was founded by the CODE team to provide young people aged 15-20 with the opportunity to find out more about coding and designing.

  • Code+Design Camp, Feb 8-11, Berlin
  • Further dates to be announced soon – Check out code.design/camps

Open Door days

We’d love to meet you in person and show you around our great campus. We will have a few Open Door days this year – come and visit us and find out what CODE looks like, meet the professors and staff, and enjoy Berlin.

Subscribe to our newsletter to be notified about Open Door dates.

Meeting and networking options

The founding team will be present at several events within the next months. Here are the next dates:

Unlike a typical university, CODE is located inside one of the largest startup campuses in Europe – Factory Berlin.

As an enrolled student, you will be a member of this community (we pay your monthly membership fee) and gain access to an inspiring work environment and exclusive events.

Diversity over uniformity

We want CODE to be a multifaceted place for men and women and everyone else from all back­grounds. So that we can learn from each other.

At CODE, you will have ample opportunity to question your prejudices. In discussions, we value ideas over hierarchy. That does not mean your ideas won’t get challenged, however. Prepare yourself for intense debates. In the end, the best idea wins – no 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, there is no better place to meet other motivated women who had the same reservations and did it anyway! If you are interested in and passionate about what CODE has to offer, take the plunge.Sarah Kurten started her studies in October.
  • Real-life cases for real-life learning

    We are 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 capability to use cutting-edge technologies. People are the key, and we empower our students to be team players.

  • Foster smart interactions

    Our students and partners are encouraged to come together at regular constructive meet-ups and for other more typical occasions (like job fairs or for internships).

Our partners: Connecting with talents 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 may present cases as well as delegate experts.
