KARLSRUHE INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY (KIT)
Being “The Research University in the Helmholtz Association”, KIT creates and imparts knowledge for the society and the environment. It is the objective to make significant contributions to the global challenges in the fields of energy, mobility, and information. For this, more than 9,000 employees cooperate in a broad range of disciplines in natural sciences, engineering sciences, economics, and the humanities and social sciences. KIT prepares its students for responsible tasks in society, industry, and science by offering research-based study programs. Innovation efforts at KIT build a bridge between important scientific findings and their application for the benefit of society, economic prosperity, and the preservation of our natural basis of life. KIT is one of the German universities of excellence.
Collaboration across all disciplines makes KIT one of the most important locations of research into global transformation of the mobility system. Mobility researchers are organized in KIT’s Mobility Systems Center. It fosters collaboration of expert researchers, organizes events, awards the Carl Benz Prize, and renders teaching services within the Master’s Program of Mobility Systems Engineering & Management at KIT’s Hector School.
