adesso School of Coding and Software Engineering
The adesso School of Coding and Software Engineering was born to educate the coding experts of the future. In collaboration with the XU Exponential University this curriculum offers students a chance to learn in interactive class-rooms, group projects and also to apply their knowledge in a practical context.
Overview Study Plan
Let’s go – your first semesters
In your first semesters, you will learn the most important programming and markup languages in depth. These include HTML, CSS, Java, Java Script and Switft. You will familiarize yourself with the methods and techniques of agile software project management and the planning and implementation of coding and software engineering projects.
For you, in-depth learning means application. In the first semester, you will already take part in a Coding Bootcamp and start writing code. The name is the game: Code Red – Coding in Action.
After three semesters, you will already have the core coding skills and can refer to yourself as a Junior Developer. Whether a Junior Web Developer or a Junior App Developer – your expertise is already in demand on the market.
Another focus of your first semester is digital communication and innovation management. You will learn how to effectively and efficiently use modern methods of digital communication and collaboration. You will work with innovation methods and techniques, including agile development, prototyping and rapid prototyping. You will develop and test the latest digital methods and techniques in a playful way, gaining a high degree of digital competence during the process.
We believe that you learn best when you try it out for yourself, when you experience it for yourself. That’s why specific projects, group work and an interactive classroom are a big part of our curriculum. Our partnership with adesso SE also ensures that our learning material will always be up to date and relevant to the market and technologies employed.
As full-time student at the adesso School of Coding and Software Engineering, you will study at one of our international partner universities in the fourth semester. You have the choice at which of our partner universities you would like to spend your semester abroad.
Final spurt – your last semesters
You will deepen your acquired digital skills and will select at least two elective subjects. If you want to know more, you may also choose other subjects.
Your studies. Your future. Your decision.
This also applies to your elective subjects. You decide which specialization suits you best. When making your choice, be sure to consider the experience you have gained from jobs, internships and projects and the demands that the job market places on you.
Become a Senior Developer and leave the junior days behind you. In practical sessions, you have learned how to build attractive portfolio sites and interactive sites that inspire your audience in terms of both content and design, where user experience is a top priority.
Become a Senior App Developer for gaming apps. You know your way around game concepts and, more importantly, game development. Create and code your own gaming app. If you consider the needs and wants of your users, you will be well on your way to selling your first app.
Become an expert for Usability Engineering. You know when formats like 2D, 3D or animation are used and how appealing images are created. You know about the importance of usability and user experience. As part of a project, you will test various dialogs in Human-Machine-Interaction and develop digital solutions according to your set focus.
Become an expert in artificial intelligence and become the interface between development and direct application. You know how to use methods, techniques and algorithms of artificial intelligence and can judge their applications. Whether it be search engines, the analysis and prognosis of course developments, in writing, image and speech recognition, games, animations, simulations or knowledge-based systems (e.g. IBM Watson), you know your way around.
Become an expert in the field of Data Warehouse. Big data and smart data are equally your topics of interest. You know how data warehouses are created, so you can securely store data, process it and swiftly evaluate it. You are well versed in Data Architecture, Data Collection, Data Organization, Data Mining and Reporting.
Become an expert for mobile devices. You are familiar with the concept and technologies of smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices that can be used to access data and information. You know exactly what wireless communication is about and what it takes to make data secure.
Become a consultant for digital business processes and systems and become the central interface between technology and management. You have both business knowledge and consulting skills that enable you to successfully advise a corporation on digital processes and systems (e.g. ERP systems).
Become an expert in business management and effectively utilize your management skills to bring a company to a new level or to successfully launch your own start-up. As part of a project, you will deal with select issues from HR management and organizational development. In addition, you will acquire the most important fundamentals in marketing and improve your budgeting and pricing skills.
And last but not least – your bachelor thesis
In your last semester, you will complete your studies by writing a bachelor thesis. In your bachelor thesis, you will address concrete and practical questions in the digital domain. You can work on your thesis in cooperation with businesses like our partner adesso SE, whether it be large corporations or start-ups.
You successfully completed your bachelor studies in Coding & Software Engineering? What’s next?
Depending on which specialization you have chosen, you can take off in the following areas, for example:
- Coding/Software Engineering (Software Developer/Designer)
- Software Project Management
- IT Application Consulting
- IT Coordination and Organization
- IT Quality Assurance
