CODE is a state-accredited university of applied sciences in Berlin that offers Bachelor's degree programs in Digital Product Development. CODE is an international and inclusive learning environment that attracts and empowers digital pioneers from around the world to reach their full potential. They foster transformative innovation as a community by encouraging creativity, critical thinking, collaboration, and curiosity-driven learning. The most effective way to learn is not to passively absorb selected facts and ready-made content in order to reproduce it for the next exam. Curiosity-driven education comes into play here. Many modules are offered as part of an interdisciplinary learning experience by each of the three programs: Bachelor of Science in Software Engineering, Bachelor of Arts in Interaction Design, and Bachelor of Arts in Product Management. Real-world projects are at the heart of their study programs, which are supplemented by seminars and workshops using an advanced flipped-classroom concept. CODE believes in challenge-based learning, in which mentors help students develop competencies, learn how to collaborate, and achieve their full potential. All offered courses are grounded on a common competence framework. Upon start, each student receives an individual profile based on their already existing abilities to enhance and develop in their course of studies. From the beginning, students are working project-based and self-regulated in interdisciplinary teams of software developers, interaction designers and product managers. Those projects are created and selected in close cooperation with a number of companies and organisations. All in all, studying at CODE will definitely be different than any other higher-education experience. As a student, you will not be confronted with pre-selected knowledge but empowered to be a creative problem-solver who knows how to learn.
