The Hochschule für Technik Stuttgart has been training students since 1832, and the original winter school for craftsmen has long since become a modern University of Applied Sciences.


Three faculties offer 32 bachelor's and master's degree courses. The university is characterised by inter-faculty projects and contacts to numerous companies in Stuttgart and the region as an attractive business location.


Universities of Applied Sciences are successful due to their clear profile of translating scientific results into practice-oriented teaching and applied research. The range of subjects is oriented towards the labour market and is constantly being expanded. The central profile element is its strong practical relevance. Through an integrated practical semester, project work, laboratory events and excursions, students gain valuable insights into practical working methods. Professors generally have several years of professional experience outside the university sector and thus combine professional success with scientific reputation.


In order to prepare our students optimally for the working world and to support their career planning already during their studies, the HFT Stuttgart in cooperation with JobTeaser has launched the new HFT career portal.

The career portal offers:

  • Search engine for internships and vacancies
  • Student profiles
  • Company profiles
  • Events: coaching, workshops, trade fairs...
  • E-mail notifications
  • Information and videos about application and career
