A gentle start into the academic life

From the first semester onward, each student of the Carl Benz School participating in the College Program is assigned a personal mentor. Experienced doctoral researchers of selected institutes of the Department of Mechanical Engineering conduct the Mentoring Program. With regular meetings, the mentors support the academic and personal development of our students.
