On Wednesday, November 16, 2022, pupils are invited to inform themselves about the studies and training opportunities offered by the universities in Baden-Württemberg, including Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). The program at KIT will start at 8 a.m. with presentations, lectures, videos, and guided tours of Campus South and its research laboratories. The LineUpr app will inform the pupils about whether the events take place online or on campus and will also show the way to the on-campus events.
Employees and student representatives of the eleven KIT Departments as well as many central institutions will inform about study opportunities and interesting things to know. Numerous information events, lectures on campus as well as virtual presentations, and tours of institutes will provide detailed insight in studies and training at KIT.
Professor Alexander Wanner, Vice-President for Higher Education and Academic Affairs at KIT, will welcome the pupils online at 9 a.m. and then take part in a discussion with students.
The Student Advisory Services (ZSB) that organize the Information Day may be contacted all day at an information desk in the Executive Board building (Präsidiumsgebäude, Engelbert-Arnold-Straße 2, building 11.30). Student advisors will answer any questions relating to application, admission, and the study decision both on campus and online.
Visitors of KIT Campus South, who also wish to take part in virtual events, are free to go to the entrance hall of the Executive Board building or the seminar room A/B at the Audimax (Straße am Forum 1, building 30.95) and to join these events from there with their mobiles or laptops.
At 10 a.m., “Walk & Talk: Studieren am KIT” will start at the Executive Board building. During a walk across the campus, pupils will be shown important buildings and they will have the opportunity to ask questions to a student or student advisor.
