The KIT Department ETIT

For many years, the Department of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology (ETIT) at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) has held a leading position in the German university landscape.

The department is working in the necessary breadth to research and develop application-optimized electronic overall systems: From materials, technology, and components to the integration and testing of hardware and software in the fields of measurement technology, control engineering, and information and communication technology.

A unique asset of the electrical engineering and information technology program at KIT is the great number of majors in the master's program, from which students can choose their specialization.

The lecture contents are constantly updated by findings from research projects. The combined forces of the university Campus South with the large-scale research area of Campus North offer students unique insights into current research topics. Furthermore, experts from industrial companies provide the necessary practical aspects for the curriculum.
