Concept of the study programme
The course of studies is oriented close to research during the bachelor programme already. This is supported by its affiliation to the SRC SimTech, in which the Cluster of Excellence in Simulation Technology is integrated. Nine out of ten faculties of the University of Stuttgart participate in the new course of studies. SRC SimTech’s principal investigators, who come from those different research fields, are involved within the study programme both as lecturers and mentors. New SimTech Chairs have been installed for the course of studies additionally.
30 students per year
Applicants for this challenging study programme should enjoy solving mathematical problems and they should have a solid basic knowledge in mathematics and natural sciences. They should have a high level of motivation and initiative as well. In individual admission interviews, up to a maximum of 30 students will be chosen by the members of the SRC SimTech. From the beginning of June until July 15th, applications can be submitted over the university’s internet platform: .
Graduates with a broad range of possibilities
The study programme educates students at the interface of different research fields that play a key role nowadays and in the future. The graduates can be employed in many different fields, e.g. from car development to environmental technologies. And there is a huge demand for them from the business side.
They also have good prospects to start an academic career. Therefor they can continue their studying at the University of Stuttgart at the winter term 2013/14 when the master programme “Simulation Technology” is about to start. The master programme is designed as a study path of excellence that can be followed by a PhD programme.
