About 42 Wolfsburg
At the beginning of 2021, 42 Wolfsburg has opened its (remote) doors in Wolfsburg’s Markthalle. 42 Wolfsburg aspires to be a mix of Hogwarts, the MIT Media Lab and Ferdinand Porsche’s innovation spirit. When it’s fully operational, our campus will host 600 students on their learning journey to becoming master coders! Of course an innovative software engineering school in Wolfsburg, with Volkswagen as co-initiator, we are dedicated to develop a training path (42 specialization) around Software Engineering Automotive & Mobility Ecosystems (SEA:ME). Our students will shape the digital future of the automobile as well as mobility ecosystem with a focus on open standards and open source solutions. That said, we offer the full 42 curriculum and students are free to choose the specialization they are interested in! Last but not least 42 Wolfsburg is a student-centered and value-driven organisation. Our Mission is to provide an ecosystem that empowers learners to jumpstart successful careers in IT and to live responsible, entrepreneurial lifes. Together, we have set-up our community principles, which are inspired by the Burning Man Community, the United Nations Global Compact, The Hacker Ethic and Ray Dalio‘s Principles. They’re meant to lay the foundation and continuously evolve to inform our joint venture: radical inclusion, building together for participation, use tech for good, sharing and gifting, live freedom of expression, we are strict but fair and transparent, take ownership, leave no trace, and we learn to live a good life!
