  • Special features regarding teaching
    Broad, foundation-oriented training in the Bachelor's degree; Extension and consolidation of the qualifications acquired in the Bachelor's degree in the Master's programme; Application of scientific knowledge and methods; ability to develop new solutions to problems and thus break new technical ground through the application of established Construction Engineering or Building Science rules; the institutes' comprehensive research and third-party funded activities guarantee students an insight into current developments.
  • Special features regarding the international orientation
    The faculty offers the English-language Master´s degree programme in Water Science and Engineering.
  • Special features regarding the equipment
    Civil engineering at KIT is characterised by the integration of large materials-testing and research centres in all areas of teaching. The Research Centre for Steel, Wood and Stone (founded in 1921), the Theodor Rehbock Water Construction Laboratory (founded in 1899) and the Materials Testing Institute for Building Materials and Concrete Construction, Concrete Materials – all have a long tradition and are constantly evolving in keeping with the needs of science, research and practice.
  • Support for founders
    At the KIT, the service unit Innovation and Relations Management (IRM) is the central partner for business, alumni and sponsors at the KIT and it also looks after students and staff at the KIT. Its services include a career service, technology transfer of research results to industry, start-up consulting, support for KIT alumni, private sponsors, foundations as well as prizes for students as well as the sponsoring.
  • Other special features
    The goal of teaching at the KIT is the training of young people based on an intensive scientific and research-oriented education and the acquisition of interdisciplinary competences. To achieve this goal, the KIT pursues a strategy of research-oriented teaching aligned with the standards of the (classic) disciplines. Students are involved at an early stage in research projects as well as in the large-scale research area of the KIT, and the quality of teaching is sustainably improved in line with the principle of "teaching follows research".
