Answers to frequently asked questions


No, no pre-internship is required.

No, there is no entrance exam. You will be admitted to the study program by means of an NC (admission restriction of study places).

We cannot answer this question, because the answer depends on the number of study places and the number of applicants every year. A ranking list is determined and as many applicants are offered a place as there are places available in the study program, since it is a study program with restricted admission (numerus clausus).

You have probably received admission to a language course with subsequent studies.

As soon as you have the TestDaF result, you are a regular student. You can take care of your own appointments:

  • The lecture period starts in the middle of October. (12.10.2020, 18.10.2021)
  • Registration for the exercises and practical courses takes place in the first week of lectures.
  • Registration for the exams begins in mid-November (11.11.2020)

If you have missed one of these dates or if you know that you have no TestDaF result at the beginning of the lecture period: write an e-mail to the study office to arrange a consultation appointment.

Our B.Sc. degree qualifies you for admission to our Master's degree program in Electrical Engineering and Information Technology.

Depending on the focus of the B.Sc. degree, it also qualifies for admission to our Master's program in Sustainable Electrical Power Supply, Electromobility or Information Technology

A study stay abroad is a valuable enrichment of the studies and is highly recommended. The bachelor's/master's program offers numerous opportunities in this regard: The internationally recognised Bachelor's degree enables students to obtain a Master's degree abroad (for example in the USA). An internship abroad complements the Master's program with international experience of limited duration. Cooperation with European and non-European universities will make mixed degrees possible (following the model of the double degree, which has already been very successful to date). Please enquire early on at the International Student Advisory Service or on our International Studies pages.

Yes, the bachelor's/master's degree program at the university provides the same long-term fundamentals, the same sound training in lectures, exercises and internships and the same opportunities for in-depth study in laboratories and application-oriented projects as the diploma program.

Alignment with international educational standards facilitates the recognition of qualifications abroad. The ECTS (European Credit Transfer System), on which the bachelor's/master's degree program is based, contributes to this in particular.

The modular structure makes it easier than before to complete parts of the course abroad or at another university.

The first professionally qualifying degree of the Bachelor's program allows an early entry into the profession and either part-time or later to catch up on the Master's program. At present, we recommend that the Master's degree course be directly connected to the Bachelor's degree course.

The graduate of a university should be willing and able to contribute to the solution of current and future-oriented problems. To this end, university studies at a university provide a sound and long-term basis for the subject. In addition to this, students will be able to deepen their knowledge in the fields of application, the contents of which are taken directly from current research work at the university.

During studies at the University of Applied Sciences, the direct application of the subject is the main focus of the training. The aim is to apply the acquired knowledge as directly as possible in application projects. The University of Applied Sciences conveys known knowledge, the development of new knowledge is not the goal.

The student at a university of cooperative education is at the same time an employee in a company and the training takes place to a large extent in this company and for the purposes of this company.

Stuttgart forms the centre of the high-tech region "Middle Neckar", which is home to global companies such as Daimler, Bosch, IBM, Hewlett Packard, Porsche and numerous medium-sized companies. The University of Stuttgart works closely in research projects with many of these companies - this is why it is one of the universities with the highest level of third-party funding in Germany. The jobs for our graduates are therefore "right on our doorstep" and many interesting projects form the basis for high-quality teaching.

Furthermore, Stuttgart is a cultural centre with numerous internationally recognised highlights (State Theatre, State Gallery, ...) and a remarkable location in terms of landscape.

In principle yes, but we recommend this only in exceptional cases. Only the advanced and in-depth Master's degree program contains the further basic knowledge required for highly qualified work in industry as well as the specialist specialisation in one of several key areas.

No! The Bachelor's degree does not include an industrial internship. Within the framework of the Master's program it will be possible to carry out a practical activity (research work) in industry.

The most important thing is interest in technology and in innovative solutions for technical problems! Mathematics, physics and computer science are also important. Good academic performance in these subjects is a good basis for successful studies.

Yes, studying engineering at university requires commitment, interest and hard work. The successful graduate then has many opportunities in many professional fields (development, research, production, quality assurance, sales, user support, ...) with excellent career prospects. The graduate of the university is more strongly challenged than graduates of other study institutions to take on responsibility in the job and thus has many opportunities for development and advancement.
