Welcome

Many well known scientists do this department proud:
These include: Heinrich Hertz, who, 1886/88, in Karlsruhe, proved the existence of the electromagnetic wave; Otto Lehmann, who discovered liquid crystal in 1888; and Ferdinand Braun, who developed the cathode ray tube, which was named after him, in 1897. The Department of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology in Karlsruhe has its roots in the Physics Department, however, already in 1894 an electrotechnical department was formally founded, with Engelbert Arnold as its first professor.
