Stuttgart Media University

How are books printed? How is information archived and documented? What does “communication” mean? How are virtual worlds created? What happens behind the scenes in TV studios? What is important in the design of packaging and how does advertising actually work? Students at Stuttgart Media University are concerned with these and many other questions.

Since the 1st September 2000, Stuttgart Media University has brought together the combined know-how of the former University of Printing and Media, an educational institution with over 100 years of tradition, and the University of Librarianship and Information whose history reaches back to 1942. With 15 Bachelor’s degree programmes and 6 Master’s degree programmes, a part-time MBA, and a doctoral programme, Stuttgart Media University covers a broad spectrum of media expertise: from printed media to electronic media, from media theory to media production, from media design to making media available.

At Stuttgart Media University, students learn in modern lecture theatres as well as in workshops and studios, at printing machines or behind the camera. Exciting practical projects in the University’s laboratories or in cooperation with partner companies complement theoretical knowledge and scientific working methods. Stuttgart Media University has two campuses: lectures and other taught courses in the Faculties of Printing and Media, and Electronic Media take place on the main Campus in Stuttgart-Vaihingen. Degree programmes in the Faculty of Information and Communication are taught in the City Centre Campus in Wolframstraße in the centre of Stuttgart.
