ei-bauhaus stuttgart

The Art of Engineering in Teaching & Research

"young people, come to the ei-bauhaus stuttgart!"

based on Hannes Meyer, page from the brochure "bauhaus / junge menschen kommt ans bauhaus!", 1929

In the 101st year after the founding of the famous State Bauhaus in Weimar, which with its visionary teaching and training concept initiated a new beginning in architecture, building culture and design and continues to have an effect to this day and to develop creative forces worldwide, the Institutes of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology at the University of Stuttgart have made it their task to adapt this special teaching, training and research concept to the needs of electrical engineering and information technology in order to shape the university engineering education of the 21st century.

With the Bauhaus concept, we want to break new, progressive ground with our students in research-based teaching and practice-oriented education, so that in the future "Bauhaus" will not only be a synonym for architecture, art and design, but also a synonym for progressive engineering in electrical engineering and information technology.

At their court meeting on 31 January 2020, the Institutes of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology at the University of Stuttgart therefore decided to establish a

which newly bundles the outstanding technical and infrastructural equipment of the institutes, dovetails and expands the research-based teaching concept more comprehensively and, in particular, by adapting the workshop concept of the Bauhaus, creates a theoretically sound and at the same time highly practice-oriented education that enables our students to learn and work independently and creatively in teams from their first Bachelor's or Master's semester onwards.

Our guiding principle is to enable young people to create disruptive innovations and to react appropriately to disruptive changes, as well as to absorb and develop them. The training at ei-bauhaus stuttgart thus aims to enable our students to make an important contribution to the people of our country, our society and our world.

Disruption requires not only creative energy combined with a sound knowledge of science and technology, but also responsibility and ethical action.

The ei-bauhaus stuttgart therefore also sees it as one of its central tasks to live such values and to encourage the critical examination of ethics and responsibility in the joint work in teaching and research.

Furthermore, the ei-bauhaus stuttgart sees itself as an interdisciplinary school of knowledge acquisition that sharpens the view for art & culture and society & politics and contributes to the cosmopolitanism and entrepreneurial spirit of its students.
