Karlsruhe University

The Fridericiana is Germany’s oldest Technische Hochschule (TH) or technological university. The university, whose campus is situated in the centre of Karlsruhe, was founded in 1825. Some 18,000 students, including approx. 3,700 from outside Germany, are enrolled in 43 degree courses. Its main disciplines are the natural sciences, engineering and economics. Universität Karlsruhe (TH) is rated as a top university in many higher education rankings. Nobel Prize laureates in physics and chemistry have worked at the TH as have technological pioneers like Carl Benz, the inventor of the car. Like TU Munich, the TH belongs to TU9, the group of Germany’s nine leading technological universities. It also sees itself as a research university, the idea that forms the basis for its institutional strategy. At its core is the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), where the TH is cooperating with the extra-university Research Centre Karlsruhe – a model partnership.
