Acquire competence, network with enthusiasts


NEW: Master of Science Blockchain & Distributed Ledger Technologies (DLT)

In March 2018 the BCCM organized the Blockchain Spring School 2018 with great success. We want to build on this success and organize from March 4th till March 7th, 2019 the Blockchain Spring School 2019. This event aims to impart knowledge and skills in the field of Blockchain. We offer both lectures and practical courses (hands on) on computers.

Target group: Representatives of Consulting companies, corporate users, and students – from all over the world.

Prerequisites:No special Blockchain knowledge or skills necessary

Type: Lectures and practical courses on the computer, in german language

Location: University of Applied Sciences Mittweida, Saxony, Germany

Date: March 4th, 2018 – March 7th, 2019

Degree: Certificate of participation issued by the BCCM of the University of Applied Sciences Mittweida


Content of teaching

In addition to the general cryptographic basics (eg hash functions, -pointers, digital signatures, Merkle trees, …) and the blockchain basics (eg Bitcoin, Ethereum, Transactions, Scripts, Blocks, Proof-of-X, Dapps, …) at Spring School we focus on private and consortial blockchains (eg Hyperledger, Blockchain-as-a-Service, Tendermint, …) as well as the latest blockchain infrastructure developments (eg IOTA, hashgraph, …).
There will be parallel sessions in order to be able to offer both blockchain beginners and advanced students a very ambitious, individual program. The theory sessions are complemented by practical lectures by company representatives as well as our proven lectures and practical courses at the computer (hands-on) in our computer pools – individually supervised by competent tutors and our best students.

Rooms (1-2 lecture halls und 4 Computer-Pools)
