  • Special features regarding teaching
    Due to the broad scope of activities of civil and environmental engineers, which range from the development and use of complex calculation methods to the design of urban space, the faculty's curriculum has a very strong interdisciplinary orientation. This is demonstrated by the faculty's four key areas of specialisation (Construction, Transport, Water, Modelling) and the extensive involvement of other departments (Architecture and Town Planning, Business Administration, Chemistry, Renewable Energies, Automotive and Motor Engineering Geodesy and Geoinformatics, Computer Science).
  • Special features regarding the international orientation
    Three international, consecutive Master's courses (curriculum in English), one international continuing education course. There are exchange programme with Calgary, Cape Town, Gothenburg and cooperation agreements with 30 universities in 15 European countries. Double degree programmes in WAREM with Chalmers/Sweden and Universiti Teknologi MARA/Malaysia. 20% of all ECTS credits in Master's modules are offered in English.
  • Special features regarding the equipment
    Three large-scale research establishments: Research Centre for Hydraulic Engineering, Test Centre for Groundwater and Land Reclamation (VEGAS), Sewage Treatment Teaching and Research Centre; Porous Media Lab under development, link to the materials testing institute (material testing and large-scale component testing); Chair of Hydraulic System Modelling: part of the BW Grid Cluster; 2 computer rooms; 2 multimedia labs; Laboratory for transport science, with model railway system; precision mechanical workshop; rock and soil engineering lab
  • Special features regarding research activities
    "Green Engineering Design" vision": optimisation of technical infrastructure (materials, building, supply and disposal, transport) for a sustainable society; Speaker and member of the Simulation Technology Cluster of Excellence; excellence fields: Lightweight construction and adaptive structures; Resource-Optimised Construction and New Materials; Lifecycle Analysis; Computational Mechanics: Simulation Technology; Water and Environment (Water Research Center Stuttgart); Energy- and resource-efficient building; Mobility and Transport (Universität Stuttgart transport research focus)
  • Other special features
    Two Clusters of Excellence in Faculty 2: ‘Stuttgart Center for Simulation Science’, ‘Integrative Computational Design and Construction for Architecture’: New thinking for the built environment
