42 IS BUILT OUT OF PARTNERSHIPS
Today, there are over 30 campuses of 42 worldwide, each one supported by one or several benefactors, both individuals and companies, that are aware of the urgency to promote a more inclusive, disruptive and tecnologic education system.
Besides the financial support, each partner gets involved with the 42 community in different ways, by promoting conferences and workshops, challenging their employees to become mentors to the students, or by presenting challenges for the pedagogic team to develop new projects for the curriculum.
Being a partner of 42 Lisboa means being part of an innovative education project in Portugal. It means being an active member in building a better, fairer, more technological future with more opportunities – for the next generation and for the country.
A simple way to reach out to 42 students is to host a mini-conference or meet-up on campus. We’re always looking for innovative and exotic subjects that will excite our students, provide them with feedback, and share with them a vision of industry trends.
Students, staff and partners are invited to work together in real challenges, developing real, innovative solutions, while deepening their knowledge and technical skills in several areas.
42 curriculum challenges students to engage with real-world dilemmas and subsequently in its troubleshooting during their academic projects. These projects are a lot of times designed based on real challenges presented by the 42 benefactors.
42 offers students several workshops throughout the year developed with the school partners to challenge students to work on their social skills such as communication and networking, learning how to design their CV or to prepare for a job interview.
