ABOUT 42 HEILBRONN

 

42 Heilbronn is a private coding school that is entirely free and stands for coding excellence. The innovative educational concept is committed to project-based peer learning – without books, classes, or teachers. Our hands-on educational model is accessible to everyone, independent of their educational and socio-economical background or diplomas. On a 42 campus, students learn and work within a gamified project environment and at their own pace. Further down their journey, depending on personal interests, students focus on different expertise fields of their choice. Besides coding, our education model fosters critical thinking and helps students develop teamwork skills. Alumni are working in much sought after industries as AI specialists, software developers, IT security experts, video game developers, or web developers.  

42 Heilbronn is part of the international 42 network and is sponsored by the Dieter-Schwarz-Stiftung. The non-profit coding school exists as an addition to the higher education landscape and aims to help secure our country's digital future.

Nowadays, the network encompasses 33 locations in more than 20 countries and offers a home to 10,000 students. The curriculum is continuously developed further to be up to date with current and future requirements of the tech world. The second German campus besides Heilbronn is located in Wolfsburg and is sponsored by Volkswagen AG.
