Welcome to the Institute for Applied Materials - Materials for Electrical and Electronic Engineering (IAM-WET)

The IAM-WET is an institute of the Department of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT).  
The major area of research is the characterization and modeling of innovative materials and devices in the fields of:

  • High temperature fuel cells → electrical energy generation and electrolysis
  • Lithium-ion batteries →  energy storage and electric mobility
  • High temperature membranes → CO2-free power plants

Our lectures cover fundamental knowledge as well as application-oriented subjects. Working out your bachelor or master thesis at IAM-WET you have the opportunity to collaborate with our partners from academic research institutions and industry.
