Exhibition and Talks, Workshops and Networking, Party and More

The time has come: The first students have successfully completed Code & Context – the explorative Bachelor’s degree programme at the intersection of computer science, design and entrepreneurship at the TH Köln!

To mark this occasion, we will open our doors to the public on 21 and 22 October 2022 and invite you to our annual exhibition ITERATION 2.0 at Schanzenstraße 22 in Cologne-Mülheim.

Students and graduates, staff and teachers will present the best work from the first three years of Code & Context and bring their degree programme to life in all its diversity. Exhibits from our four fields of activity Coding Software, Developing Things, Designing Futures and Creating Impact are waiting to be discovered by our guests – either on their own or on one of the interactive tours through the exhibition.
