More about CODE University of Applied Sciences

CODE University of Applied Sciences is a leading tech university in Germany. The school offers bachelor programs that allow students to learn from three degree programs by working in interdisciplinary teams on real-world projects. 

Software engineers craft code in a multitude of environments, disci­plines, and lang­uages – on their own and in teams.

Product managers develop strategies and concepts for digital products, coordinate their development, analyze and validate ideas, and help them grow.
