Welcome to the Faculty of Civil Engineering, Geo and Environmental Sciences!

Please find below some information you might find useful prior or during your studies at KIT:

Language Skills

We strongly recommend German language proficieny at a B1-level, obligatory is A2-level at the time of application. 
Whereas all courses in the Bacheor program are in German, we offer some courses in English at the Master level - both in the Civil Engineeting & Water Science & Engineering Master Programs.  If incoming students plan to attend English‐taught lectures or write a thesis in English, proof of English knowledge at B2‐level is required.  

Certificates do not necessarily need to be from the Goethe Institute/TOEFL/IELTS. We also accept certificates issued by your university or issued by another language school. However, we will not accept simple certificates of attendance.

Course Selection

Information on current lectures can be found in our KIT External Link university calendar (Make sure to 'select' the right semester in the scroll-down menu at the upper right side). English taught courses can be found by entering the English title into the search function of the calendar. 

Information about the course content, the examination regulation, the course structure as well as the ECTS credited can be found in the Module Handbooks

When consulting the moduele handbooks please make sure to verify the course language.
