This Summer School was a great way to get to know people who share your interest in mechanical engineering. I learned a lot. (Dominic from U.K.)

Experience the world of engineering!


The lectures and excursions focus on railway system technology, automobiles, robotics, energy and virtual engineering. Participants also have the chance to experience various hands-on activities during the workshops. The visit to the world-famous Daimler AG completes our academic agenda.


Our many exciting excursions give you the opportunity to become acquainted with Karlsruhe and the German culture. The highlight of the excursions will be the visit of the most popular theme park in Germany – the Europa-Park in Rust.


The Carl Benz Summer School is a great opportunity to gain first impressions of student life and to learn more about your possible future career in engineering!
