About

The Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) is ranked #1 in employability amongst all German universities and achieves numerous top placements in the field of engineering every year. As the Mechanical Engineering College of the KIT, the Carl Benz School of Engineering offers high-quality lectures by excellent professors of the KIT. All students in the Mechanical Engineering (International) programme taught at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) receive an individualized all-in-one service package, support, additional training and study guidance in order to develop their professional profile.

The program begins with a so-called Pre-Semester, a preparatory course in Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, and English. After two years of intermediate studies, which cover the basic concepts of mechanical engineering, the students can choose to specialize in either Automotive Engineering, Energy Engineering or Global Production Management. Carl Benz School students will graduate with a Bachelor of Science degree from KIT. 

The Bachelor program comprises lectures, tutorials, and lab courses with lecturers and tutors coming from different institutes of the KIT. This ensures that the quality of the subjects taught to meet the highest standards. 

In addition to the academic demands, students are also encouraged to complete an industrial internship. The hands-on industry training program Smart Factory and Industry is new and unique worldwide.
