Bachelor of Arts – Software Engineering

The study program covers various programming languages, database systems as well as project planning and collaboration.

Good software engineers are excellent problem solvers and combine abstract thinking skills with a hands-on mentality. The Software Engineering bachelor program provides you with comprehensive scientific and practically applicable competencies you need to become an expert in the field of software development.

A computer program does what you tell it to do, not what you want it to do.Unknown

At CODE you will experience a new way of learning

The most effective way to learn is not by passively absorbing selected facts and ready-made content to reproduce for the next exam. Information is best remembered when it is embedded in a context of practical meaning. That’s where curiosity-driven education comes into play.
