SIT Learning becomes Constructor LearningRead more

From our founding as Propulsion Academy in 2016 to our acquisition by SIT last year, today we welcome our new brand name: Constructor Learning. Constructor Learning is part of the Constructor Group, initially named Schaffhausen Institute of Technology (SIT). The organization was founded in 2019 by Dr. Serg Bell, a long-time entrepreneur and investor in technology and education. Dedicated to creating knowledge through science, education and technology, the ecosystem combines a comprehensive educational offering that spans the entire learning lifecycle, from K-12 to a private university and executive courses, next-generation research capabilities and commercial activities for technological innovation. Founded and headquartered in Schaffhausen, SIT has rapidly grown since its creation, thanks to organic growth and acquisitions. As it has become a global organization with a footprint in more than 15 countries and a worldwide network of researchers, professors, investors, clients, and alumni, the brand had to be rethought to reflect this expansion better and unify the entire ecosystem under one name: Constructor.

Full Stack Capstone Projects #20

Full Stack Capstone Projects #20

Published on 02-08-2022
This blog post highlights the projects of our Full-Stack students from Batch #20. Check out the results they have achieved in so little time. Below are the fascinating projects they implemented in the final month of the three-month program.


ProjectUP - A platform for submitting, approving and showcasing projects for SIT Learning

Students: Sven RüeggAndrea ButuzaJan ZimmermannSimon Krüger

Students of SIT Learning are required to showcase their skills at the end of their learning journey in form of a development project. Companies or students themselves are asked to hand in ideas with a description, wireframes or additional requirements to the program managers. The program managers then review the ideas, select suitable projects and assign them to a group of students. In turn, students can are granted the opportunity to build their portfolios for their application process. Real-world projects are excellent learning opportunities for the students to gain practical experience in a safe and controlled environment. Currently, ideas are collected and reviewed manually through Word Documents.

This project aims to provide an open platform through which registered individuals can pitch their ideas for final projects to the boot camp administrators. An example of this could be a nonprofit organization in need of a tech solution, perhaps companies aiming for prototypes to explore new ground or students on fire for a creative idea they want to realize.


  • Submit projects through the web form so project owners can pitch their ideas to the program managers
  • Manage projects (review, edit, assign, approve) by the program administrators
  • Get assigned or subscribe to projects as a student

Future features
  • Showcase your projects by posting them to a personal portfolio page after completion as graduate
  • Overview of already developed projects
  • Graduates page with short descriptions and contact details – links to personal project portfolio
  • Personal portfolio page for each student

Students: Sandeep Dharnia, Daniel Kött, Melissa Guimaraes, Alex Bender, Julian Bräuninger

In this day and age, information technology has made the requirement for even small and medium businesses to have a presence on the Internet to keep up with their competitors. The problem is that they might struggle to find a solution that offers both simplicity and a high level of customizability to cater to their needs. DropShop aims at tackling both of those issues by implementing a logistics management tool for the seller, choosing what item to sell, what item to discount and other custom possibilities by performing a simple drag and drop, the changes being immediately displayed on the client side.

TeamUP - An intuitive sports venue booking application

Students: Rachel Frischknecht, Curtis Sanderson, Nour Hussein, Reto Schneider, Daniel Orihuela

Doing sports has always been beneficial and recommended for most people. The problem is that to play a team sport, like football or basketball, one either needs to be part of a club or have the required amount of players of the same sport among their friends to all be available at the same time.

TeamUP solves both of those problems at once by making the user able to reserve any spot available at any venue, at the time slot they require, for the sport of their liking and at the position they wish to play, in a matter of seconds.

Users can also invite guests to fill up their spots if they’re not alone but yet not enough to make a team.

TeamUp Webpage - with sports

  • Straight forward booking process of sports venues
  • Multiple types of sports, fields and formats available
  • Registration of venues and time slots by a venue owner
  • Look for sports events by date and location

TeamUp Webpage - Home page

Future features
  • Enable payment with a credit card using Stripe systems.
  • Add venues tied to sports federations with custom services (videos, lessons…)
  • Optimization for smartphones
  • Geolocation

Choose player field
