About the University of Stuttgart

The German city of Stuttgart is home to the prestigious research institution known as the University of Stuttgart (German: Universität Stuttgart). It has 10 faculties and was established in 1829. One of Germany’s oldest technical colleges, it offers highly regarded civil, mechanical, industrial, and electrical engineering degrees among others. It is a part of TU9, an organization made up of the biggest and most renowned technical universities in Germany. The institution has a strong reputation in the areas of advanced automotive engineering, effective industrial and automated manufacturing, process engineering, aerospace engineering, and activity-based costing.

Stuttgart’s first university, the Karlsschule, existed from 1770 to 1794. Except for a few shared operations, it has been known as the University of Hohenheim in Stuttgart-Hohenheim since 1818 and is unrelated to the University of Stuttgart.


The current University of Stuttgart was established in 1829, and in 2004 it celebrated its 175th birthday. The institution began using the name Technische Hochschule Stuttgart (Stuttgart Institute of Technology) in 1876 due to the growing significance of technical sciences and education in these subjects. It received permission to issue Ph.D. degrees in technical areas in 1900. The Technische Hochschule Stuttgart was renamed to the current “Universität Stuttgart” in 1967 as a result of the expansion of its educational offerings. The development of new subjects, like the social sciences and the history of science and technology, as well as the expansion of already-existing ones, like history and art history, came along with this name shift.

The Academic Ranking of World Universities and the Times Higher Education Supplement, which rates more than 1000 universities globally, routinely place Universität Stuttgart among the best universities in the world. In terms of engineering and technology, the University of Stuttgart is currently placed 79th in the world by QS World University Rankings. The University of Stuttgart, which is rated 42nd globally and third in Germany, is one of the top institutions for mechanical, aeronautical, and manufacturing engineering. It has also received several rankings as one of Germany’s top engineering schools.
