Autonomous and Interdisciplinary Research

More than 3000 young scientists pass PhD programs at KIT. One fifth of them comes from abroad.

More than any other institution, KIT supports young scientists by funding their doctorate. 83% of the PhD students hold at least half a position. This is the result of a survey made by the Karlsruhe House of Young Scientists (KHYS), the central coordination and communication platform for young scientists, among the PhD students. They were found to be highly satisfied with the rooms, access to the laboratories, technical equipment, and the team atmosphere.

At KIT, PhD students conduct research autonomously and in an interdisciplinary manner in graduate schools and research groups at a very early time already. At KIT, doctorates are conferred in five disciplines: Natural sciences, engineering sciences, economics, humanities, and social sciences.
