Let us take you into the exciting world of top-level research at the MPA University of Stuttgart.
- The Blue Tower in Bad Wimpfen
The Blue Tower in Bad Wimpfen was built in the 13th century as a keep. Since then it has been subjected to several structural changes, most recently the addition of four corner towers. Since 2013, a consortium with scientific-technical participation of the MPA University of Stuttgart has been investigating the tower and, based on this, has been fundamentally renovating it since 2018. Learn more about this project here.
- Ariane Booster
The European Space Agency (ESA) is currently developing a new system for space transportation, the Ariane 6 rocket, and the central functional test of the solid rocket is being conducted at the MPA University of Stuttgart. Find out more about the project and the test in our 32-meter deep test shaft.
- Concrete roadway 4.0
The increasing traffic loads on german roadways with simultaneously rising demands on their quality and durability requires a rethinking in the choice of building materials, construction and in the execution. Find out here how the MPA University of Stuttgart and a consortium of partners develop the road of the future in a project funded by the German Federal Highway Research Institute (BASt).
- Stuttgart timber bridge
The solid timber bridge developed at the MPA University of Stuttgart in cooperation with industrial partners is the interdisciplinary answer for a material-compatible, permanent crossing of streams, roads and valleys. Find out here how the bridge works, that was awarded the German Timber Construction Prize 2017.
