Karlsruhe Alumni to Tour KIT

During the first RWTH alumni meet-up in Karlsruhe last May, several participants voiced the desire to have another meeting soon. Now a visit to the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, or KIT for short, was initiated by alumnus Thilo Dauch. It will take place on November 17, 2017 and include a tour of several institutes, including the Institute for Applied Materials IAM. Professor Britta Nestler, RWTH alumna herself, will be on hand to present the IAM to the visitors. Furthermore, visits to the Institute for Food Process Engineering, BLT-LVT for short, and the Institute for Thermal Turbomachines, ITS. The day will conclude with an enjoyable dinner social at the Höpfner Burghof Restaurant.
