Wie weiß ich was? Die Antwort ist 42

How do I know what? The answer is 42 Vienna

42 – This is how curriculum works

The 42 Vienna curriculum builds on the content and innovative program of École 42 Paris and is already used in over 42 campuses in more than 25 countries – now we’re finally bringing it to Austria with 42 Vienna!

All 42 Vienna students have the same starting point in the degree program. From there, they can decide which areas of computer science they would like to specialize in. The 42 education model is based on the peer-to-peer method, in which students learn by interacting with themselves and their peers. This type of teamwork fosters not only problem-solving skills but, more importantly, critical thinking. At their side, a competent pedagogical team that checks progress and offers assistance.



After the piscine, all attention is on projects on command line interactions, C programming and algorithms. This is followed by project topics on C Unix and web programming. Duration: 8 months
