Master's Program Infrastructure Planning (MIP)

Participating Faculties

Here are listed the participating faculties of the MIP and further information

Twelve institutes of four faculties are contributing to the interdisciplinary Master`s Program Infrastructure Planning (MIP)

Faculty 2 - Civil and Environmental Engineering

Civil and environmental engineers are in charge of designing both the build and natural environments. Civil and Environmental Engineers use resources and produce durable goods, which have to be operated and maintained over long periods of time, as well as renewed at the end of their life cycle.

Civil Engineering involves important responsibilities and aspects in the technical implementation and the use of the designed and constructed facilities such as human health, environmental impacts, aesthetics, economics of construction and life cycle assessments. Last but not least, Civil and Environmental engineering is characterized by its broad and diverse fields, as well as by its interdisciplinary collaboration with other engineers, mathematicians, computer scientists, as well as natural scientists, legal experts, and economists.

Our faculty consists of 14 institutes with 21 departments and over 400 employees. We offer consecutives Bachelor’s and Master's degrees, Master's programs in English, and three extra-occupational Master's programs. Graduates are also able to participate in a Graduate School, a binational Research Training Group or an international PhD program, depending on the research focus. Regarding the research area, the Faculty is engaged in several Collaborative Research Centre (Sonderforschungsbereich). For two of them (SFB 1244 Adaptive Hüllen und Strukturen für die gebaute Umwelt von morgen [DE] and SFB 1313: Interface-Driven Multi-Field Processes in Porous Media - Flow, Transport and Deformation) the speaker are professors of the Faculty.


Faculty 10 - Management, Economics and Social Sciences

The faculty views its mission as to achieving advances in knowledge in economical and social sciences. Central research emphases are "complex systems and comunication" and "modeling and simulation technology".


Faculty 6 - Aerospace Engineering and Geodesy

The faculty for Aerospace Engineering and Geodesy at the University of Stuttgart is in an internationally outstanding position because of the way it connects fundamental aviation technologies, space travel, and geodesy. It is nationally the only aviation and aerospace engineering faculty at a public university; the combination with geodesy is also nationally unique. Its strong focus on teaching fundamental principles, combined with targeted, practice-oriented areas of specialization, creates a distinctive profile that counts as a mark of quality in Stuttgart’s research and industry sectors.

The approximately 2000 students of aerospace engineering and geodesy also learn about the interdisciplinary research areas of aviation technology, aircraft development, propulsion systems, avionics, spacecraft ascent and re-entry, satellite technology, and earth observation. The theses developed in these areas cover a wide range of topics, including mission analysis, flight control, aerodynamics, thermodynamics, material development, structural development, construction design, system development, and the operation and combustion of air-breathing propulsion systems.


Faculty 1 - Architecture and Urban Planning

The aim of the faculty Architecure and Urban Planing is to achieve a high education quality for the best chances in the labour market for their graduates. Professional success is guarenteed. The studium focuses on designing as a creative process for solutions concerning  complex challenges. The basis is an open discourse on aesthetic concepts, technical innovations and the meaning of ecological and economical  questions. The developed and integrated understatement of Designing, based in Stuttgart, assumes well founded basic knowledge and the ability to interdisciplinary cooperation which can be aquired in a strong connection with research and practice.
