Our recommendation for all first-year students!

Experience shows that starting your studies in many subjects depends heavily on your knowledge of mathematics. For this reason, HFT Stuttgart offers you the opportunity to review the basics relevant to your studies before you actually start. The SkiLL (Service Centre for competence-based & innovative Learning & Teaching) organises the "Math refresher" especially for first-year students. Here you can close any gaps in your knowledge of mathematics and be well prepared for your technical or business studies.

Summer Semester 2024:

The Math Refresher for the Summer Semester 2024 takes place from 04. - 08.03.2024!

Registration is possible from 05.02. - 03.03.2024.

You will receive further information about the bridge course, e.g. course times etc., after you have registered.

Math Refresher

Become a math tutor in the bridge course

Do you enjoy passing on your knowledge of (among other things) algebra, elementary functions and trigonometry to prospective students? Then become a tutor in the bridge course and the first point of contact at the university for first-year students. The first-year students will get to know you as committed, active students from higher semesters who will make it easier for them to get started, and not just in mathematics. This is a valuable and profitable commitment that will help you progress both professionally and personally!


The Maths Refresher is suitable for all bachelor's degree students at the HFT Stuttgart from engineering courses and some economics courses. It is not directly relevant for students from the bachelor's programmes in architecture, interior design and business psychology - but they can still participate.

Since participation has repeatedly proven to be helpful for a successful start to studies, the Maths Refresher is strongly recommended for first-year students of Mathematics and Sciences Courses (Bachelor).

No, if you are registered at the HFT Stuttgart you can take advantage of this offer free of charge.

The Math Refresher always starts two weeks before the official start of lectures.

In the mornings there are courses on various mathematical topics, such as

  • Algebra: Basics, calculation techniques, solving equations and inequalities
  • Elementary functions: Power functions, polynomials, logarithm etc.
  • Trigonometry: angle, sine, cosine and tangent function and their properties
  • Depending on the course of study: elementary geometry or basic mathematics in economics or computer science

In the afternoon, tutors from higher semesters lead through exercises and address problems that may have arisen in the course of self-study. Solutions are developed and presented together. Afterwards the topics are deepened in group exercises. The very popular learning app TeachMatics is also used.
