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. Graduates work in an interdisciplinary way and have knowledge and ability in all important areas in order to assure coordination and cross-functional functions.

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 approach of the Smart City Solutions programme of Stuttgart University of Applied Sciences 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.

Excellent career opportunities

Graduates have excellent career prospects, both nationally and internationally. Smart City is an important action field for different stakeholders offering a wide variety of job and internship opportunities: e.g. municipal administrations, IT companies, international business and engineering firms, utilities providers. 

The Smart City Solutions master programme interconnects expertise in the areas of sustainable urban development and building design, mobility, energy, water management, administration, sustainable finance and multi-level governance. You will gain qualifications that combine technical, management, design and business development expertise
