Hello and Welcome
We welcome you to the websites of Stuttgart Mechanical Engineering. It bundles the information about research and teaching at the mechanical engineering faculties of the University of Stuttgart.
Mechanical engineering in Stuttgart
Baden-Württemberg is the center of the German mechanical and plant engineering industry, with over 330,000 employees and the highest share of sales in Germany. And the Stuttgart region is the center of this center.
Technical innovations have made our region known far beyond its borders. That is why mechanical engineering has a high status and a long tradition at the University of Stuttgart: We have been teaching mechanical technology for over 150 years.
Scholars such as the legendary mechanical engineer Carl Julius von Bach had their place of work here. Bach was the first rector of the then Technical University. He founded eight mechanical engineering institutes, the Materials Testing Institute and the Engineering and Mechanical Laboratory.
The range of mechanical engineering research and teaching has expanded greatly over the years. In addition to classic fields of application, we now deal with future topics such as digitalization, e-mobility or renewable energies.
