ID Timeline


The successful history of the International Department started in the year 2000, with the founding of the Carl Benz School of Engineering. The Carl Benz School offers high-quality education in the form of an undergraduate mechanical engineering degree program. In 2005, the HECTOR School of Engineering & Management was established. The HECTOR School offers seven part-time master programs for the advanced education of engineers, computer scientists, and economists. Shortly after, the Karlsruhe School of Optics & Photonics was founded. It further enhances the portfolio of the International Department with full time English language Master and Doctorate Programs in Optics & Photonics. As a second Graduate School the Helmholtz International Research School for Teratronics was established in 2012 to produce a new generation of researchers and developers with competences in the entire electromagnetic spectrum. Last but not least, established in December 2013, the Hector Fellow Academy provides eminent scientists a framework for successful teamwork and networking.
