Communication offers for professors

The central communication of KIT helps you to achieve your communication goals

KIT communication pursues strategic goals: For example, to attract the most talented students and the most capable scientists to KIT or to intensify the transfer to the economy and the dialogue with society. We, the Department of Corporate Communications (SEK-GK), are responsible for the central internal and external communication of KIT. We are the contact for the media and the public and report up-to-date, target group-oriented, and multimedia-based on the results of KIT's top research as well as achievements in teaching and innovation.

Following the "Digital First" approach, the website serves as a central portal to the KIT's information offers. Our communication formats range from press releases, expert mails, and online reports to the press newsletter KIT-Kompakt, social media, and the research podcast to the research magazine lookKIT and the student magazine clicKIT.

We offer employees numerous opportunities to find out about current developments and interesting topics at KIT on the intranet, KIT.intranews, and KITdialog, the magazine for employees - and to let others know what you are working on yourself.

You can find out about media coverage here.
