GRACE Profile

GRACE is the Graduate School for PhD students of the KIT-Center Climate and Environment at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). It is the goal of GRACE to provide to its students not only highly specialized and interdisciplinary knowledge but also important key skill qualifications. In cooperation with the Technical University of Darmstadt a wide range of possibilities for study and research will be made available.

Due to the obtained qualifications and management knowledge the graduates of GRACE will be prepared optimally for a future career in the fields of science and business. Moreover they will be put in the position to be able to start a new business. Besides training students to cope with complex challenges in research and management GRACE is also going to encourage international networking. To achieve this task, trips abroad, summer schools or a block course in management at ESADE Business School Barcelona are going to be funded.

A personalized concept for each graduate is meant to guarantee appropriate assistance in obtaining a high quality qualification. Students will at all times get individual support from a personal steering group (PSG) composed for example of the research group leader and an advisor as well as a theme related tutor.
