Institute of Railway and Transportation Engineering (IEV)

Welcome to the webpage of the Institut für Eisenbahn- und Verkehrswesen of the University of Stuttgart (IEV).


Intermodal traffic system design, with a focus on railway and public transportation as well as process control of transportation systems comprise the essential research areas of the IEV. Our teaching and research encompass an integrated design of transportation systems from the determination of concrete transport requirements to the technical and structural realization of transportation systems, along with the examination of the fulfillment of the previously-defined tasks related to traffic control. Our activities are customer oriented, with a focus on cost-effectiveness and environmental friendliness. Considerable importance is given to the design of intermodal transport systems, with particular attention paid to the interfaces between the various modes of transport.
