3 years
In Berlin, Germany
180 ECTS
State Accredited
The vast majority of today’s microprocessors are embedded in special-purpose systems - think cars, smart home systems, robotics, or medical devices. These processors are normally connected to the real world using sensors and actuators. They often have little processing power and memory - and at the same time, they need to react very quickly to outside input.
What You Will Learn
Our specialization in Physical Computing gives you the chance to dive deep into embedded development and the Internet of Things. You will learn how to build reliable systems that react in real-time while using little resources. You will also learn how they interface to electronics components - sensors, actuators, and other components that are the ears, eyes, and limbs of the device.
Your Study Experience
Finally: What would physical computing be without the ability to build actual physical prototypes of your devices? You will learn how to build integrated prototypes using state-of-the-art fabrication methods such as 3d printing.
The History of CODE
Established in 2017, CODE was born out of a glaring disconnect between modern tech education and the evolving needs of students and the industry. Despite digital technologies shaping our world, traditional educational systems lagged. CODE emerged as a solution, an innovative institution where a deep love for digital technologies meets a new educational approach.

At its heart, CODE is about Curiosity-Driven Education (C<>DE). We value curiosity as the primary force for learning. Our teaching method isn’t just theory; it’s hands-on, project-based. Students tackle real-world problems instead of merely attending lectures. Here, learning is about starting with a question and journeying to its solution.

Students at CODE dive into projects, working collaboratively across disciplines. We empower them with the necessary tools, skills, and mindset to challenge norms and make a genuine impact.
The CODE Benefit
CODE is a unique hub in the heart of the thriving Berlin tech scene. Supported by tech entrepreneurs, we offer unparalleled connections to the industry. Our partners bridge the academic-industrial gap, enriching our community with lectures, insights, and research opportunities.

Join CODE if you’re a challenger, builder, or shaper ready to redefine the world of digital education.
