Founded in 1878 as the "Grand Duchy of Baden College of Building", Karlsruhe University of Applied Sciences (HsKA) today is one of the largest institutions of its type in the federal state of Baden-Württemberg, with some 8,500 students and an extensive range of study programmes in the fields of engineering, computer science, and business. The university's 22 Bachelor's and 18 Master's degree programmes as well as cooperative PhD programmes are taught across six faculties: Architecture and Construction Engineering; Computer Science and Business Information Systems; Electrical Engineering and Information Technology; Information Management and Media; Management Science and Engineering; Mechanical Engineering and Mechatronics. The university was a founding member of HAWtech, an alliance of Germany's leading universities of applied sciences, and is the only German university so far to have been awarded the European Union's ECTS label in recognition of its efforts to facilitate international student mobility. In order to narrow the gap between the theoretical world of lectures and the practical world of the workplace, degree programmes at the university are specifically designed to combine an academic education with the requirements of industry. Important elements of the application-oriented curriculum are the industrial and business experience of the teaching staff, industry-relevant work in laboratories and practical courses, integrated internships in industry, application-oriented project work, and final theses. HsKA's approach of educating its students for the workplace has been validated by numerous national university rankings. In an extensive survey of German personnel managers carried out annually by the prestigious WirtschaftsWoche business magazine, the university has been named for several years as the university of applied sciences that prepares its students best for their careers in industry.
Known as the "Residence of Justice", being the seat of Germany's two supreme courts, the city of Karlsruhe occupies a strategic location within the European Union. It lies not only at the intersection of international transport and energy networks, but in recent years it has become one of the leading centres of technology in the Federal Republic of Germany. Karlsruhe ("Karl's Retreat") was founded in 1715 by Margrave Karl Wilhelm of Baden-Durlach. Today it is a relatively compact city with a population of about 300,000. Located between the Black Forest and the River Rhine, near the Palatinate and Alsace (France), Karlsruhe offers excellent recreational opportunities. The city boasts a wide variety of cultural attractions, including the Baden State Theatre, numerous private theatres, cinemas, museums, and art galleries. Several institutions of higher education are located in Karlsruhe, with a combined student population of well over 40,000. Amongst them are HsKA, one of the largest universities of applied sciences in Baden-Württemberg; KIT, formerly Karlsruhe University, the oldest technical university in Germany; and the oldest university of education in the country. The spectrum is completed by the Academy of Art, the University of Music, the College of Design (together with the Centre for Art and Media), a cooperative state university campus, and a private international business school. HsKA is situated within easy walking distance of the city centre as well as the large park and art gallery adjacent to the palace built by Margrave Karl Wilhelm.
