Demands on Young Scientists

Both industry and research expect young scientists to be qualified and skilled in more than just their special fields of studies. Multiple skills call for multiple concepts. Interdisciplinary advanced training is a cornerstone of your career and improves your prospects after you have earned your doctorate. 

The KIT facilities and institutions can offer you a large variety of advanced training courses. KHYS, in particular, cooperates with the House of Competence (HoC), the Human Resources Development Department (PEBA) and the Relationship Management/Career Service (IRM). Together and Sprachzentrum (SPZ), we offer various thematic components for your individual interdisciplinary training. KHYS will cover the major part of the participation fee for his members. Precondition is the registration with KHYS Registration Portal or with KHYS Network.
