One KIT for All

At KIT, we do not only train outstanding students, we also attach high priority to dialog with the society! For this reason, we offer a number of information and training services for people in later phases of their careers and lives, children and adolescents, or citizens interested in our research. Girls and boys can feel like students at the Children’s University. Pupils are invited to pass traineeships during holidays or can invite a student ambassador to come to their school. Practitioners may join courses on occupational safety, environmental or health protection, or project management to learn to cope with new challenges of their professions or they can attend studies parallel to their jobs. People are also free to attend regular courses as guest students or online lectures on future trends, such as bioeconomy or renewable resources. Important places of interaction between science and society are our real-world labs: Together with citizens and other actors of society, we develop, study, and test in a cooperative and participative way ideas and solutions for relevant sociopolitical problems in the areas of climate, energy, urban development, mobility, employment, or social peace.
