Special features regarding teachingIn the association of the university with the Helmholtz large-scale research area, KIT enables an early integration of students in leading international research. The association also means that additional subjects and lecturers are available for courses, degree theses and doctoral study phases. Centres of excellence and numerous graduate programmes are further assets within this.

Special features regarding the equipmentIn addition to the usual extensive lecture theatres, seminar rooms and practical areas as well as a separate specialist library for Physics with extensive student workstations, the following are a highlight: extensive experiment equipment collection which is state-of-the-art but also has a great tradition (H. Hertz); its own building for practicals in which all physics practicals are housed on-site; a large number of its own seminar rooms in the faculty area; extensive student workstations; the integration of the Helmholtz Großforschungsbereich (Helmholtz large-scale research area) in the teaching.
Special features regarding research activitiesIn addition to the nine institutes, two labs and seven associated institutes, there are three centres of excellence and a graduate school in the faculty area. By focusing on future-oriented research fields such as nanotechnology, energy, climate, environment and mobility systems, and in the association of the university with the Helmholtz-Großforschungsbereich (Helmholtz large-scale research area), KIT belongs to internationally visible scientific institutions.
Support for foundersWith the "Centre for Interdisciplinary Entrepreneurship", KIT operates a central contact point for founders.
Other special featuresInvolvement of scientists from the KIT's large-scale research area in teaching and student support. As a result, a wide range of thesis options and easy access to top international research and large-scale equipment in basic research.
