Exceptional research and teaching

The University of Stuttgart is one of the leading technically oriented universities in Germany with global significance. It sees itself as a center of university-based, non-university, and industrial research. Furthermore, it takes a role as a guarantor of research-based teaching, focused on quality and holism. The Stuttgart Way means an interdisciplinary integration of engineering, natural sciences, humanities, and social sciences based on the fundamentals of cutting-edge research at a disciplinary level.

Two Clusters of Excellence, for which the university has applied for a grant as part of the Excellence Strategy to strengthen top-level research in Germany, have been awarded funding for seven years. The successful clusters are “Data-integrated simulation sciences” and “Intergrative Computational Design and Construction for Architecture “.
