Doctoral Progams

KIT’s doctoral programs offer the opportunity to pursue a doctorate as part of a research program and a structured qualification concept. Doctoral programs focus on the education of doctoral students in future-oriented research areas as well as on the support of their personal career development and scientific autonomy. In addition, the programs support early networking, internationalization, and interdisciplinary cooperation of doctoral students.

KIT offers young scientists not only the  doctoral programs mentioned below but also graduate schools and research training groups in a variety of disciplines.
