Methodological Areas

Research Areas

We focus on six research areas in natural sciences and engineering, as well as in computer science.

Methodological Areas

The researchers in the SimTech Cluster of Excellence focus on six different methodological areas, our research areas, covering the traditional core competencies of the University of Stuttgart:

  • Natural Sciences
  • Engineering
  • Computer Science

In addition, the humanities and social sciences offer an inclusive platform for reflection.


Intersecting Research Areas in SimTech.

However, the researchers from the different methodological areas do not work separately. Our research areas intersect in many ways and are strongly connected – not least thanks to the fact that our research is organized in project networks.
