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.

SIT Academy opens a new training location in Munich

SIT Academy opens a new training location in Munich

Published on 13-07-2022
SIT Academy will open its first German training location in Munich on August 1, 2022. Having made a name for itself in Switzerland, SIT Academy GmbH, which specializes in Full stack development and data science boot camps, will now offer this successful concept locally in Munich. 

"The greater Munich area seems like an ideal location for our second academy location, as the most innovative and progressive IT companies in Germany are located here in the Isar Valley," says SIT Academy CEO, Laurent Meyer. 

"We are so grateful to have Katharina Fürst joining our team as the designated city manager. She has many years of experience in the tech industry and will be a great asset in establishing our location there."
The demand for competent programmers has grown faster than the supply in recent years. Coding-boot camps were created in order to close this gap more quickly. Full-time (12 weeks) or part-time (22 weeks) boot camps train motivated students to become full-stack programmers or data scientists. The curriculum is based on the latest technologies - which are taught by instructors with practical experience.  During the final weeks of the program, this knowledge is applied to real company projects, giving students valuable hands-on experience, which they can use in their future careers.

"We are thrilled to offer these programs on-site in Munich and in-person, giving students the opportunity to learn together and have fun doing so. The best part is that they are able to get reputable jobs at good companies after successfully completing the program. For enterprises, it is an excellent opportunity within a short period of time to gain competitive advantage - by increasing the number of well-trained and motivated employees,” raves Katharina Fürst, SIT Academy City Manager in Munich.

The SIT Academy's offer is aimed at motivated career changers, university graduates as well as interested entrepreneurs or founders.
