Teaching, learning, and research at a high level on the campus in the city centre and at the Schlosspark

The KIT-Department BGU takes a holistic approach to understanding, protecting, using, and sustainably shaping the environment as the basis of our lives in teaching, research, and innovations.

In this context, the geosciences and environmental sciences work closely together with the civil engineering sciences. Thus, the department makes an essential contribution to living in an attractive environment also in the future.
