It is fascinating to express complex issues, complicated relationships and big ideas in 0s and 1s. Once you’ve been infected with the programming virus, there is no escape. The possibilities are endless, and the pitfalls are deep. We will teach you the necessary knowledge, know-how, techniques and how to think conceptually; all you have to do is share your ideas and your passion for code, digital worlds and bits and bytes. Together, we will create great things. You can shape the world!
Our Programming Departments
Our programming departments include Software Engineering, Games Programming and Web Design & Development. The high level of practical relevance is also particularly popular here. You are also assured of contact persons and expertise in related subjects through our broad portfolio of specialist areas. In the course of your SAE life, there will always be opportunities for joint interdisciplinary team projects. The SAE community is looking forward to your next exciting project.
Forget the content!
"Many people think that studying is about the content. That's rubbish! It's about getting deeply involved with something. And it's about exchanging ideas with others and asking questions. It's about learning how to learn. That's what my studies at SAE made clear to me. I have had to learn a lot of new things since I graduated as a web developer. The SAE lecturers and supervisors have given me the skills to do that.
I have also learned to ask for help when I have stuck myself. Whether it was from the supervisor or other students. That's probably the most important thing I took away from my SAE time: just ask. Most people are nice and share their knowledge!

My path into the games industry started here
It has always been a big dream of mine to become a game developer. I took my first steps towards realising this dream at the SAE Institute Berlin.
Thanks to the competence and patience of the lecturers and supervisors, I was able to learn the necessary skills to develop real computer games.
I really liked the large and very free practical component. In the projects, the teams had a great deal of creative freedom.
This allowed us to give free rein to our imagination and learn the things that interested us the most.

I have good memories of my time at the SAE Institute in Berlin. I did my diploma in web development / web design there. During my time at the institute, I was able to lay the foundation for my current work as an independent web designer. Thanks to the practice-oriented training, I learned right from the start how to plan, create and put websites online professionally. I especially enjoyed the time with the supervisors and the seminars with experts from the professional world. I still use this learned way of working in my daily work now.
