The Stuttgart University of Applied Sciences (HFT Stuttgart) was founded in 1832 as a wintertime construction school for craftsmen and renamed 1869 into "Royal Württemberg Construction School". Today the university offers various Bachelor and Master courses in the fields of building, engineering and design, as well as in mathematics, computer sciences and business administration. The practice and implementation-oriented education follows the motto: "We turn knowledge into skill and people into personalities".
The building energy research at the (HFT Stuttgart) is concentrated since 2002 at the "Centre
for Applied Research - Sustainable Energy Technology“ (zafh.net). Under the direction of
Professor Dr. Ursula Eicker, more than 20 researchers in interdisciplinary groups work on the
development of innovative energy concepts, components of solar heating and cooling technologies
and on modelling and simulation of systems and buildings. Energy concepts for city districts are
also an important research topic.
