What is 42?

We believe the most effective way to learn is through collaborative engagement with your peers. 42 is structured to help you become resourceful without depending on teachers or lecturers. We have NO formal classrooms, schedules, or teachers. You learn from and with your peers. We immerse you into an environment where you are driven to research and share knowledge to solve problems you do not (yet) know how to solve.

THE 42 CURRICULUM

The curriculum at 42 starts with the core curriculum. This experience sets the base for minimum skills, both human and technical. Following each student’s personal pace, it lasts a maximum of 18 months and lets students learn C programming, develop simple software using classic algorithms, discover access to the file system, and learn management of the UNIX process. It also includes a simple first approach to network architecture as well as system administration. The program also offers oriented programming and a client-server project. The core curriculum is the same on each and every campus in the network 42.

The second part of the curriculum tackles classical digital and programming fields such as artificial intelligence, cybersecurity and mobile application development. It focuses on project group work and collaboration as well as neutrality towards brands, technologies and languages in order to develop the adaptation skills of our students and help them avoid the fatal obsolescence that strikes the digital market from time to time. Students are free to pick the domains they want to explore. This helps them diversify their skills and expertise. This part of the curriculum also includes internships and occasional projects with exclusive partners, other schools and even an entrepreneurial program. It’s up to the students to decide when they stop the curriculum to become Alumni.
