42 Wolfsburg’s mission is to educate the next generation of software engineers. We cannot - and don’t want to - do this alone; instead, we work with partners across academia, industry and government to ensure 42 and our students are deeply embedded in a local, national and international ecosystem.
Volkswagen is our main sponsor and helped to kick off 42 Wolfsburg. We are working with additional partners on scholarships, internships, mentoring and other projects. Get in touch to learn more how you can get involved!

A TRUSTED NETWORK
„Germany has a long tradition and visceral understanding of using apprenticeships for highly skilled technical training. It is hence very well suited to bring the 42 approach to software engineering.“
Vint Cerf - Google VP & Chief Internet Evangelist also known as one of the Fathers of the Internet
"Good software developers are always needed for developing Wikimedia open-source software projects, such as Wikipedia. I am looking forward to getting access to top talent via 42.“
Abraham Taherivand - Executive Director, Wikimedia Deutschland
„We develop software and apps for the next generation's automotive industry at the Volkswagen Digital:Lab in Berlin. We are very much looking forward to 42 students, who will be able to help us shape the future with their cutting-edge coding skills and entrepreneurial spirit.“
Jochen Scherl - Director Volkswagen Digital:Lab
„42 doesn't only create new pathways into technology careers but offers a radical and progressive new vision for lifelong learning. Students work on meaningful projects, they solve challenging problems, and they learn to be effective members of a team. Those are exactly the skills we need to tackle the big challenges of our times.“
Philipp Schmidt - MIT Media Lab Director of Digital Learning + Collaboration Studio
