We have chosen just a few examples of the many, many stories that could be told. The selection we have made reflects the strengths of our university, but could never do justice to all disciplines. Yet the variety of fields the incentives are taken from gives an impression of the variety of ideas, inventions and developments that were born under the roof of the Universität Stuttgart and the institutions that preceded it - ranging from mechanical engineering to aesthetics.
The timeline is an easy-to-use way to gain an overview of the history of the Universität Stuttgart.
It presents the history of the Universität Stuttgart and the institutions it grew from based on the different names the university has had in the past. Each section contains a description of developments during that time. The table at the end of each section gives a summary of key events for the period in question.
