Welcome to the ei-bauhaus stuttgart

The Art of Engineering in Teaching & Research

In the 101st year after the founding of the famous State Bauhaus in Weimar (1919), 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 study this special teaching, training and research concept and to adapt it to the needs of electrical engineering and information technology.

In doing so, they and their students want to break new, progressive ground 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 will re-bundle the outstanding technical and infrastructural equipment of the institutes, dovetail and expand the research-based teaching concept more comprehensively and, in particular, create a comprehensive education through the adaptation of the Bauhaus workshop concept. This will enable our students to learn and work independently and creatively in teams in order to accomplish a "work" through the safe transfer of well-founded theoretical understanding into practical application from the first Bachelor's or Master's semester onwards.

The guiding principle is to educate young people who are capable of producing disruptive innovations or who are able to react to disruptive changes, to absorb and develop them, and thus make an important contribution to the people of our country, our society and our world.

Disruption, however, requires not only creative energy combined with a sound knowledge of science and technology, but also responsible people whose ethical actions are guided by a canon of values. The ei-bauhaus stuttgart therefore also sees it as its task to live out such values and to encourage the critical examination of ethics and responsibility in the joint work of teaching and research.

Furthermore, it is the task of ei-bauhaus stuttgart to enable its students to acquire interdisciplinary knowledge, to sharpen their eye for art & culture and society & politics and to contribute to the cosmopolitanism and entrepreneurial spirit of its students.
