The KSC is located in the Hans Busch Institute (building S3|06), Merckstraße 25, 64283 Darmstadt.

The learning centre is located on the 1st floor (room 151) and can be reached via a lift and a separate staircase with access to Landgraf-Georg-Straße. The KSC can be found from the main entrance at the corner of Merckstraße and via the courtyard entrance by walking the full length of the 1st floor to the new lift.

In addition to the department homepage, you can also find daily updates on the KSC's Facebook page.

The KSC team consists of a graduate librarian and currently ten student assistants from different fields of study in Faculty 18. The team has been deliberately set up internationally, so that information can be provided in many native languages, as well as English and French.

The KSC supports with study-related assistance or individual exam preparation using the available specialist literature. Counselling at eye level is particularly important to us!

Due to its intercultural and social competence, the KSC is an ideal entry point for foreign students to find contact persons across language barriers who can open up access to learning groups.

For this approach, the KSC management received the 2017 Athene Prize for Good Teaching, Faculty Award of the Department of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology.

At present, approximately 2,100 titles from all fields of study are available for on-site use at the KSC. This stock (“Red Area”) cannot be borrowed. One can find most of the scripts for current courses too.

The literature collection is constantly updated with project funds from the department. Specific requests from students are also implemented quickly and without complications.

In addition, there is a handbook with about 3,400 books, selected by the institutes and subject areas. These books can be borrowed by students and researchers. If students are interested in a book on long-term loan, we will gladly refer them to the user.

Dissertations and theses are not available at the KSC. They can be viewed or borrowed at the ULB or at the supervising institutes and departments.

The holdings of the KSC can be searched via the catalogue portal of the Central Library ULB. Via this service, it is also possible to order online at the ULB or to place interlibrary loan orders.

Specific information on electrical engineering and information technology can be found on the ULB homepage: Subject information electrical engineering ULB

The TU Darmstadt has licensed numerous databases and electronic journals. These offerings can be used via all computers with a TU IP address. There are research terminals at the KSC from which you can access electronic resources.

The KSC team supports you with special literature and database searches and offers appropriate training, in groups or individually.

Further training and advisory services:

We offer numerous scripts of current lectures for sale in a printed form.
Due to the limited opening of the KSC, we offer sending the scripts to your home. To place an order use our form.
