Chemical- and Bio-Engineering

Chemical- and bio-engineers, for example, deal with questions from a wide variety of scientific and technical fields: "How does an internal combustion engine actually convert gasoline into mechanical energy?" "Isn't an electric motor more efficient?" "How can a machine produce medicines from chemicals, or even fertilizers, cosmetics, paints, plastics, food, etc.?"

For Chemical- and Bio-engineers, the motivation lies in their work to preserve life, protect the environment, and meaningfully research, develop, and improve systems.

Renewable Energy Engineering

The study program deals with technical solutions for the use of renewable energies, drawing on content and methods from the natural sciences and engineering. The course covers the entire spectrum of renewable energies: Biomass, hydropower and ocean current energy, wind, photovoltaics, solar thermal energy, fuel cells and hydrogen economy.

Automotive Engineering

Vehicles and their drives fascinate and inspire you? - The automobile guarantees the individual mobility of people and goods. That's why it has to be constantly adapted to changing conditions through innovation. The current focus is increasingly on drive technology and vehicle networking. The focus of the course is the motor vehicle with all the basics and subsidiaries that are necessary for its understanding. This makes this program unique in Germany.

Is it possible for me to do that?

Yes, studying with us is challenging. Many who shy away from mathematics or physics should know: With effort, determination and perseverance, (almost) anything is possible! Studying also means learning how to learn. This gives you a good foundation for a professional life characterized by independent, well-founded work.

Which study program is right for me?

There are various ways to find out. In addition to the tried-and-tested technology-specific online tests, you can also get valuable recommendations from more general survey questionnaires, such as those on the website was-studiere-ich.de. To complement this, there are personality tests and strengths-based surveys that can help you determine your inclinations and abilities, or simply get confirmation of them.

Take advantage of counselling offers

The concentrated, various offers of the study programs, the Central Student Advisory Service and the MINT Center of the University in the form of lectures, events, workshops, introductory lectures and preparatory courses will help you to find out which study program is the right one for you.

Choose courageously - and stay flexible!

With a degree program in mechanical engineering in Stuttgart, you are flexibly positioned. Thanks to our interdisciplinary, networked structure, it is possible to change to another, closely related course of study. If, during your studies, you discover that your chosen field of study does not quite match your interests, or if an "emergency" arises in the form of a loss of examination entitlement, you can change to a related course of study that may be better suited to your abilities. If you wish to change, please contact our Mechanical Engineering Office or the program managers of the degree programs for advice as early as possible.

Guidance during your studies

Competent advisors are available to our students for various concerns during their daily study routine. The Mechanical Engineering Center is a central contact point for mechanical engineering in Stuttgart. It provides general advice on all of our courses of study and supports students with questions regarding the organization of examinations and changing courses of study. Our International Service Point (ISP) provides advice on studying abroad. The study program management is responsible for coordinative and organizational matters of a study program and answers concerns about the study organization or structure. For subject-specific matters, our subject advisors are there to help. In addition, the Student Counceling Center (ZSB) of the University of Stuttgart provides our students with an independent advisory service.
