Zurich, 28.11.2022 – SIT Learning, the next-generation educational partner for digital transformation, is becoming Constructor Learning, as part of the rebranding of Schaffhausen Institute of Technology (SIT) into Constructor.
Founded as Propulsion Academy in 2016, Learning has been acquired by SIT in 2021 and has benefitted since then from the growth potential and industry network from its parent company, SIT. Over the last 6 years, the company has grown to more than 750 alumni and a team of 35 employees.
With locations in Munich, Zurich and Dubai, Constructor Learning is offering 15 different programs in tech and management. Among them are the Master of management analytics, courses on the latest in data science, full-stack development, cybersecurity, Web 3.0 or strategy analytics, and customized programs for organizations.
Headquartered in Schaffhausen and founded in 2019 by Dr. Serg Bell, a long-time tech and education entrepreneur and investor, SIT has rapidly grown since its creation. It has become a global organization with 700+ employees from more than 17 countries, offices in 9 countries, 1.800+ students, and 6.000+ alumni from more than 110 nationalities in a multi-site campus. After a majority share taken into Jacobs University Bremen, the development of a hub and spokes model for our research capacities, growing commercial entities, and increased projected funding to 100+ M EUR, the brand had to reflect this expansion better and unify the entire ecosystem under one name: Constructor.

It benefits from partnerships with high-ranked universities such as Carnegie Mellon, the University of Geneva, and the National University of Singapore, and technology companies such as JetBrains, Anisoprint and ChemDev.
Constructor's research focuses on five fundamental technology global trends: general intelligence, quantum technology, intelligent materials, hybrid reality, and life engineering.
