Company profile

The Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) is The Research University in the Helmholtz Association. Its major research areas are based on long-term societal challenges and seek to develop sustainable solutions to urgent future questions. The objective is to contribute importantly, by top-level research, teaching, and innovation, to the success of major societal projects, such as the energiewende, or safe and sustainable mobility or intelligent technologies for information society. The focus is on energy, mobility, and information. Other major topics are climate and environment; man and technology; and elementary particle and astroparticle physics. More than 9,500 staff members, of whom more than 6,000 are engaged in science and higher education, and more than 25,000 students make the KIT one of Europes largest institutions for research and higher education.
