Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Huep, long-time Vice Rector for Science and Research, had his last working day on February 28, 2023. However, Wolfgang Huep will remain with the Stuttgart University of Applied Sciences as a lecturer in the field of surveying. Here, he will pass on his concentrated knowledge, which he has acquired over many decades, to students in the future.
Wolfgang Huep was appointed professor at the HFT Stuttgart in the summer semester of 1998. His areas of expertise in the Faculty of Surveying, Computer Science and Mathematics are surveying, geoinformatics and electronic data processing. He studied geodesy at the Technical University of Braunschweig and at the University of Hannover. In 1985 he received his doctorate from the University of Hannover. Before he was appointed to the HFT Stuttgart, he worked as a development engineer, product area manager and marketing manager at the company Leica, Heerbrugg Switzerland, and in the geodetic systems division of the company Carl Zeiss, Oberkochen and Jena.
Since the winter semester 2007/08, he was in office as Vice Rector for the area of science and research. In the rectorate, he was responsible for the Institute of Applied Research, quality assurance and continuing education, as well as for all transfer topics within the framework of the federal-state funding initiative "Innovative University".
For Wolfgang Huep, it was a matter of the heart to accompany the HFT Stuttgart as the university with the third highest funding in Baden-Württemberg in profiling and strengthening the area of research. From the very beginning, the transfer of science and research topics into society played an important role for Huep. An important aspect that Wolfgang Huep will continue to pursue in his new role as a lecturer.
