ITAS provides young academics the opportunity to earn a doctorate in a multidisciplinary environment. Since ITAS is located in the direct vicinity of numerous technical facilities of KIT, the expertise of researchers on site can be used. This is especially relevant for works on systems analysis.
Apart from dissertations, students can also write their diploma, master’s, or bachelor’s theses at ITAS. The institute’s interdisciplinary way of working offers various disciplinary links.
As a research institute within KIT, ITAS is also involved in teaching and focuses on courses and lectures on Technology Assessment and Science and Technology Studies (STS).
