  • Karlsruhe University of Applied Sciences is the largest university of applied sciences in the state of Baden-Württemberg, offering both academic and professional higher education study programs in engineering sciences, natural sciences, and business.
  • Its programs are taught across the following six faculties: Architecture and Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering and Information Technology, Information Management and Media, Computer Science and Business Information Systems, Mechanical Engineering and Mechatronics, as well as Management Science and Engineering.
  • The campus is located on the edge of the Hardt forest, yet within walking distance from the city center.
  • Alongside teaching, research plays a vital role at the university. It is one of its core competencies and is seen as an important part of its profile. 
  • Karlsruhe is the second largest city of the German federal state of Baden-Wüttemberg after its capital of Stuttgart. It is located on the bank of the Rhine and near the French-German border.
  • The city experiences oceanic climates and its winter climate is milder, compared to most other German cities, except for the Rhine-Ruhr area. Summers are also hotter than elsewhere in the country and it is one of the sunniest cities in Germany. Precipitation is almost evenly spread throughout the year.
  • The city has over 50 museums, theaters, and galleries. Many people like to enjoy mild summer evenings in restaurants of the lively squares around the city center.
  • The Karlsruhe Palace was founded in 1715 and almost all roads in the city lead to the palace. The palace was damaged in war and the city decided to keep the facade and turn the rest into a regional museum for Baden.
  • Karlsruhe's fine arts museum has 800 years of European art with an accent on Dutch and French works from the 17th and 18th centuries.
