About

The goal of the Smart City Solutions programme of Stuttgart University of Applied Sciences is to train the specialists of the individual departments as generalists who have a broad view of the diverse tasks and challenges of a modern city.  

Overview

Cities around the world are increasingly suffering from noise pollution, congestion, gridlock and harmful air pollution. Many urban agglomerations are also facing the challenges of poverty, uncontrolled growth, mountains of rubbish, power cuts or a lack of or inadequate drinking water. Missing sewage systems and sanitation facilities, but also shortcomings in public and domestic safety are affecting the life of millions of people. The increasing impact of climate change with floods, water shortages and cyclones is challenging more and more cities.

The Smart City approach is based on the realisation that subject-specific competencies in the areas of transport, energy, urban development, administration, construction law etc. have until now been rather poorly connected. The complex requirements of the livable, future-oriented city can only be met if there is a much closer and interdisciplinary interaction between these fields in future. All this requires a new kind of personnel resources with qualifications that combine technical, management, and business administration expertise in a new way.

Specialists to generalists

Designing integrated solutions for the future of cities, our graduates have excellent career prospects in a wide variety of areas. The process of forming suitable teams of consultants for the task at hand, which is completely new in this form, is in full swing worldwide. Smart City has definitely become an important field of activity for various actors who need specific competences and capacities: e. g. local authorities, IT companies, international business and engineering offices, service providers etc. Graduates of the Smart City Solutions programme of Stuttgart University of Applied Sciences have excellent career opportunities, both nationally and internationally. Our well-developed network of mostly internationally operating companies offers a variety of job and internship opportunities.
