The CBS College Program

The Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) offers the Mechanical Engineering (International) program, the only Bachelor's program conducted in English at the university. Attracting a predominantly international student body, this program operates closely with the CBS College Program, ensuring a college-style community. The CBS program provides comprehensive support, including on-campus housing, administrative assistance, student services, academic counseling, tutoring, and a variety of personal and intercultural development opportunities. The collaborative effort extends to facilitating internships in the final year, addressing a common challenge for international students.

The study program as well as the College Program are offered entirely in English.
