The Study Centre

The SZS today ...

The Study Centre for the Visually Impaired Students (SZS) is a cross faculty service and research facility at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). The SZS assists blind and partially sighted students, particularly in the completion of the study courses offered at KIT. Strategic components of the work of SZS are service offerings and research.
The successful establishment in 2011 of the Professorship of "IT systems for visually impaired students", occupied at present by Professor Rainer Stiefelhagen, supplements the previous fields of activities of the SZS with new key research topics.
