In 1995 the Polytechnic was renamed the University of Applied Sciences Stuttgart. The HFT Stuttgart acquired the building Kienestrasse 45 which became Building 4 and houses the Departments of Civil Engineering, Foundation studies and Building Physics. Block 4, a pavilion in the courtyard was created as the result of a university-wide student project and was planned and built by the students.
Interdisciplinary teaching concepts, a dedicated didactic centre, a strongly funded Institute of Applied Research, more than 70 partner universities as a global network and outstanding career opportunities these are all more reasons for studying at HFT Stuttgart.

While it is the economic centre of South-West Germany, especially for the automotive industry, it is also known as the city of wine and as the city of architecture and culture.Alongside the Staatsgalerie are many other museums worth visiting in Stuttgart, such as the Art Museum, the Württemberg State Museum, and the Museum of Natural History. Other cultural highlights are the many theatres in the city, such as the Classical State Theatre and the Modern Theaterhaus. Other leisure activities can be pursued in the various gardens or in the woods surrounding the city, or perhaps the Wilhelma zoological-botanical gardens.
