The Karlsruhe Institute of Technology - KIT
The Karlsruhe Institute of Technology - KIT, was established by the merger of the Forschungszentrum Karlsruhe and the University of Karlsruhe. With more than 6.000 researches and 25.000 students KIT combines the tasks of a German university with those of a research center of the Helmholtz Association in the areas of research, teaching, and innovation.
KIT assumes responsibility for contributing to the sustainable solution of the challenges that face the society, industry, and the environment. Engineering sciences, natural sciences, the humanities, and social sciences make up the scope of subjects covered by KIT
In high interdisciplinary interaction, scientists of these disciplines study topics extending from the fundamentals to application and from the development of new technologies to the reflection of the relationship between man and technology. KIT’s research covers the complete range from fundamental research to close-to-industry, applied research and from small research partnerships to long-term large-scale research projects.
