Key qualifications 

In addition to imparting specialist qualifications, KIT also attaches importance to interdisciplinary qualifications (key qualifications). This includes, for example, languages, scientific work and writing, presentation, time management or the ability to work in a team.

For Master-Students starting WS 2016/17 or later the additional key qualifications are not required anymore. These  will in future be provided integratively (i.e. as part of a module). However, additional modules of max. 30 ETCS points can still be acquired. More details see SPO 2016.
