In general, studies at the KISD are project-oriented. Besides these projects, studies are characterized by scientific seminars which are accompanied by lectures, technical seminars, and workshop introductions. Additional courses are also offered for example for short-term projects in order to teach specific know-how within a short period of term. The spectrum is completed by student work groups in which students contribute to everyday life at KISD.
At the beginning of each term a curricular calendar is published for the selection of seminars and projects. This serves as a basis for the individual combination of the study plan of each student.
