Karlsruhe Institute of Technology

The Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) is a public research university and one of the largest research and education institutions in Germany.
KIT was created in 2009 when the University of Karlsruhe (Universität Karlsruhe), founded in 1825 as public research university and also known as "Fridericiana", merged with the Karlsruhe Research Center Forschungszentrum Karlsruhe, which was originally established as a national nuclear research center (Kernforschungszentrum Karlsruhe, or KfK) in 1956.[3]

KIT combines the traditions of a renowned technical university and a major large-scale research institution in a very unique way.
