Summer Engineering Academy
Join our international team at the Summer Engineering Academy in Suzhou, China. The Engineering Academy is one week course, compact with the unique combinations of practical and theoretical course programs in engineering as well as leisure activities. The course is aimed at secondary school students that have a passion for mathematics, physics, and technics and are between the ages of 16 and 19.
The many exciting workshops, lectures and company visit provide great insight into the world of mechanical engineering. Lecture topics focus on the compelling subjects of mechanics, mathematics and thermodynamic and are exemplified within the practical workshops.
Additionally, we contribute insight into the specifics of what it will be like to study Mechanical Engineering at an international university level. The young talents also learn about future job perspectives of an engineer that holds an international profile.
Parents of the bright students are invited to listen to a separate, exclusive presentation and are welcome to ask any questions about studying, engineering or life as an international student.

The mornings will still be in-person at the KIT China branch in Suzhou, and the afternoons will be on an online format presenting on-site. The Summer Engineering Academy will have support in China as well as being moderated from the Carl Benz School campus in Karlsruhe, Germany. This will provide you with additional valuable insight into our campus, activities, and lectures.
Please note: Due to the unprecedented situation presented by the international COVID-19 crisis and because your health and safety are of utmost importance to us, we have updated the Summer Engineering Academy program. We are aware of the extraordinary circumstances that may occur due to COVID-19, but we are doing everything we can to hold the Summer School Programs (CBS Summer School & Summer Engineering Academy) as planned. Should anything change due to state laws that would inhibit us to hold the Summer School Programs as planned, we will inform the participants directly as well as add the information to our website and social media channels.
