Digital teaching and learning content has played a central role in all areas of study and research at HFT Stuttgart for years. The university had to master a particular challenge in spring 2020: in March 2020, the state government decided to postpone the start of lectures at all universities of applied sciences (HAW) in Baden-Württemberg due to the Corona pandemic. HFT Stuttgart had to react quickly and was able to provide students with teaching content in digital formats and online lectures just a short time later.
With the official start of lectures, almost all lectures were held online. For the Stuttgart University of Applied Sciences this meant: HFT goes digital! Within a very short time, all 32 courses of study converted their learning and teaching content to digital alternatives.

The topic of digitisation is also playing an increasingly important role in the university's administration. The digitisation unit is directly assigned to the chancellor. The focus of its activities is the optimisation and digitisation of administrative processes. The unit is supported by the digitisation working group, which is made up of employees from various areas of the university. The aim is to digitise all analogue administrative processes and files in order to make things easier for all members of the university and to enable more flexible working.
