Welcome to the Carl Benz School of Engineering

The CBS College Program

By enrolling in Mechanical Engineering (International), you can take advantage of a special study format with small class sizes ensuring a higher level of assistance and support as compared to the regular study program.

The College Program is coordinated and organized by the Carl Benz School of Engineering (CBS) in cooperation with the KIT-Department of Mechanical Engineering.

The CBS offers a College Program which accompanies and strengthens the Mechanical Engineering (International) study program. This multi-faceted program includes a variety of benefits to support students and lead them through their studies at KIT. It not only ensures small classes, which allow for a more personalized interaction with professors and lecturers, but also includes on-campus housing within student dormitories, individualized study counseling and career guidance, access to an exclusive industry trainee program on digitalization and other unique program related elements. This College Program is offered at CBS in KIT exclusively for the study program Mechanical Engineering (International). It provides an additional layer of support and service to students looking to improve their learning experiences and study success.

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