The Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, briefly referred to as KIT, was established by the merger of the Forschungszentrum Karlsruhe GmbH and the Universität Karlsruhe (TH) on October 01, 2009. KIT combines the tasks of a university of the state of Baden-Württemberg with those of a research center of the Helmholtz Association in the areas of research, teaching, and innovation.
Education at KIT is aimed at qualifying young people by extensive scientific and research-oriented training and the acquisition of interdisciplinary competences.
From fundamental research to applications, KIT excels in a broad range of disciplines, i.e. in natural sciences, engineering sciences, economics, and the humanities and social sciences.
At the end of their studies, the students are able to independently identify current and future problems, work on complex issues, and develop sustainable solutions using scientific methods.
KIT research will primarily be based on the capacities and knowledge of the scientists, who are members of the over 140 Institutes of KIT. They are supported by an excellent and worldwide unique scientific infrastructure.
In KIT these scientists work in fields of competence depending on their expert know-how. Related fields of competence are bundled in areas of competence. Fields of Competence and Areas of Competence make up the Competence Portfolio of KIT.
It is dynamic and develops and takes up new scientific topics.While the Competence Portfolio is the basis of KIT research, KIT centers and KIT focuses are organizational units that bundle research projects.
KIT wants to actively promote dual careers and support partners of new employees in continuing their professional careers. Please do not hesitate to make use of the individual counselling interviews that will help you find adequate approaches and solutions and identify potential employers in the region.
