A message from the

director of the industrial


Traditionally, German products, in particular

those associated with the mechanical and

automotive engineering industries and

those resulting from electrical and optical

manufacturing processes, are highly successful

on the world market. International perception

of German products is based upon their

proven value and quality. Such qualities include

our technical innovations, superior durability

of our products and of course their prompt

delivery. All of these attributes are the direct

result of an abundance of skilled craftsmen, of

technicians with extensive vocational training

and practical experience, and of engineers

with an excellent education and training

combined with exceptional creativity. It is a

heritage which we are proud of.

Carl Benz and Gottlieb Daimler developed the

automobile, which has contributed more to

the changing face of our planet than any other

technical innovation. Both Benz and Daimler

lived and worked independently in the vicinity

of Karlsruhe and laid the foundation for the

production of cars on an industrial scale. For

both men, quality was of key importance, a

facet which is still a fundamental attribute

of specialist industrial German products. Carl

Benz was born in Karlsruhe and received his

formal education in mechanical engineering

at the former Universität Karlsruhe (TH), then

known as the Polytechnic College, from which

he graduated in 1864. After releasing the

design and patenting his internal combustion

engine, he soon became the pioneer of industrial

scale automobile production.

Following the explosion of automobile use

during the 1920s, Benz became a household

name synonymous worldwide with quality

and innovation. Carl Benz subsequently founded

the Benz Company which then merged

with Daimler Motors to become Daimler-

Benz, Mercedes-Benz, DaimlerChrysler AG,

and then ultimately Daimler AG.

Our undergraduate Carl Benz School of

Mechanical Engineering offering Englishtaught

engineering programs is proud to be

part of this continuing legacy of extraordinary

engineering and technological innovation.

Established in 1825, the former Universität

Karlsruhe (TH), now known as the Karlsruhe

Institute of Technology (KIT) after the merger

with the Forschungszentrum Karlsruhe, is a

leading international institution providing education

for prospective world-class engineers

and scientists. The university was among the

first in Germany to offer Bachelor of Science

degree programs taught in English to students

from all over the world. Today we invite students

from all countries to join the Carl Benz

School to become leaders in engineering,

development and production of specialist

goods. As a prospective international student

you will have already distinguished yourself

as high achiever with exceptional motivation

and competence levels. Students with particularly

high qualifications may qualify for


The KIT is located in the German State

of Baden-Württemberg, which boasts

the highest research and development

expenditure in Europe, as well as the largest

number of employment opportunities in

high-tech industrial sectors. Located in the

heart of Europe with close ties to France

and Switzerland, Karlsruhe conveys a unique

outlook on the world. I am certain you will

find the city of Karlsruhe to be a delightful

and fulfilling place to further your education.

Carl Benz - Passion for Engineering

Tradition in Engineering

"The things I have aspired

to and created all have

roots which lead back to

this institution."

- Carl Benz, looking

back on his studies

in Karlsrhe

Fig. 3: Carl Benz - Pioneer in Mechanical


Technology Expertise

Mechanical Engineering

Benz’ Education

Carl Benz was born in 1844 in Karlsruhe,

Baden, Germany. Despite the limited means of

his family, his mother insisted upon providing

him with a good technical education. Being

a diligent student, Benz passed the entrance

exam to study mechanical engineering at the

Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, formerly

University of Karlsruhe, formerly Polytechnic

College. At the tender age of fifteen he came

under the instruction of Ferdinand Redtenbacher

and graduated on 9 July 1864, with a

degree in Mechanical Engineering. During his

years at the university he had already started

to envision concepts for a vehicle that would

eventually become the horseless carriage.

Benz and his first Inventions

In 1871, at the age of 27, Carl Benz joined

a mechanical workshop in Mannheim. Early

business misfortunes did not prevent Carl

Benz from developing new types of engines

and from patenting key engine components.

These patents, among them the patent for the

first internal combustion engine (granted in

1879), soon led to substantial revenue increases

and helped to subsidize the workshop

business. Carl Benz’ true genius became obvious

thanks to his successive inventions, registered

whilst designing what would become

the production standard for his two-stroke

engine. During this time he patented the

speed regulation system, the ignition using

sparks with a battery, the spark plug, the

carburetor, the clutch, the gear shift, and the

water radiator.

Benz and the Motorwagen

In 1887, after years of testing and modifications,

Benz created the first definitive commercial

vehicle, the Model 3, an automobile

with a four-stroke engine of his own design

between the rear wheels. It was gasoline

powered, the power being transmitted by

means of two roller chains to the rear axle

with wooden wheels. This became the first

Fig. 4: Classic Mercedes-Benz

production automobile. The model 3 was

introduced at the 1889 World’s Fair in Paris

with the result that it was rapidly promoted

on a wider international scale.


In 1896, Carl Benz was granted a patent

for his design of the first boxer engine with

horizontally opposed pistons. His design created

an engine in which the corresponding

pistons reach top dead centre simultaneously,

thus balancing each other with respect to

momentum. Flat engines with four or fewer

cylinders are most commonly boxer engines.

This continues to be the design principle for

high performance racing car engines such as

those used by Porsche. The great demand for

internal combustion engines increased the size

of, and indeed, completely transformed the

Benz & Cie. automobile company. By 1899

it had become the largest of its kind in the

world, increasing employment from 50 (1890)

to 430 (1899) workers and producing 572

automobiles per year.

Simultaneous Developments

While Benz was designing his boxer engine,

Gottlieb Daimler and his lifelong partner Wilhelm

Maybach, two gifted inventors in Stuttgart,

were dreaming of creating small, high

speed engines to be mounted in any kind of

self-propelled vehicle. In 1885 they patented a

precursor of the modern petrol engine, which

they subsequently fitted to a two-wheeler

considered to be the first motorcycle and, in

the next year, to a stagecoach and a boat.

Later, in 1890, they founded Daimler Motors

(DMG). The first automobile originating from

their design was sold in 1892. Although Gottlieb

Daimler died in 1900 — and there is no

evidence that Carl Benz and Gottlieb Daimler

knew each other, nor that they knew about

each other‘s early achievements — eventually,

competition with Daimler Motors (DMG) in

Stuttgart began to challenge the leadership of

Benz & Cie. in Mannheim.

After World War I, the years of depression

led to an economic crisis and it became

desirable for both companies to pool their

resources. In 1926, Benz & Cie. and the

Daimler-Motor-Company merged to become

the Daimler-Benz company, later to be renamed

as Daimler-Benz, which is now part of

the Daimler AG. After the merger in 1926, all

new automobiles were called Mercedes-Benz

in honor of the most important model of the

DMG automobiles, the Mercedes 35hp.

to the rule. The winters are mild and summers

offer the perfect weather to enjoy a day out


Breathtaking Natural Beauty & Culture

With the Black Forest located in the south and

the famous Rhine River to the west, the region

surrounding Karlsruhe offers plenty of opportunity

for relaxing in the natural beauty of south

Germany. The theaters and museums in and

around Karlsruhe cater to the cultural needs

and one of the largest annual German open-air

festival "Das Fest" is also held in Karlsruhe.

Thriving Business and Technology

Karlsruhe is also one of the most dynamic

high-tech areas in Europe – several major companies

such as Bosch, Siemens, Daimler and

Michelin have their production facilities here.

There is also a large number of mid-sized businesses

in the field of computer science, multimedia,

controls systems, energy technology,

environmental science and nanotechnology.

Beautiful Architecture of "Fächerstadt"

The nickname "Fächerstadt" (Fan City) was

given to Karlsruhe due to its unusual architectural

design. From an aerial view, it is visible

that the Palace, which was the center of cultural

activity during the Baroque period, has

32 roads extending outwards from its central

point in a star-like formation. In fact, this form

of architectural design was the inspiration in

the urban planning of other metropolises such

as Washington D.C.

Excellent Public Transportation System

accommodation provided. Solidarity is fostered

when students spend time studying and

living together in the 120-room dormitory,

where they also make friends for life.

Early Career Preparation

Industry Network

Global Markets for

companies have become

reality. Multinational

corporations therefore

have to deal with local,

national and international

issues. This requires

efficient and improved

operational methods

and create the demand

for technically wellqualified

employees who

are also equipped with

intercultural competence

and social skills.

Requirement of Employees

In this era of globalization it is becoming

increasingly important to make the excellent

educational opportunities in Germany

available for students from abroad.

In order to maintain Germany’s technological

market leadership within her export

driven economy, companies must foster

entrepreneurial thinking within their

employees. This will help to develop and

sharpen innovative business ideas and lead

to innovative products and processes. Human

capital will become the driving force for

enterprise growth and evolution.

Technology Region Karlsruhe

The Technology Region Karlsruhe is one of the

strongest economic regions in Europe, with a

Gross Domestic Product (GDP) per inhabitant

well above the EU average. Efficient regional

networks and clusters in industries such

as energy, nanotechnology, automotive and

information and communication technology

generate competitive advantages. Therefore

it provides the perfect grounds for building

engineering careers.

In addition, many large inter na tion al cor pora

Kyle Kippenbrock, B.Sc. 2008, USA

Kyle Kippenbrock has made the right choice that changed his life - after completing high school in the

States, he decided to study Mechanical Engineering at the Carl Benz School of Engineering in Germany.

Fortunately he received a scholarship from MAG and he gave his very best to perform well in his studies.

This scholarship support meant that Kyle was constantly in touch with MAG, enabling him to complete his

advanced industrial internship at MAG Industrial Automation and write his “Diplom” thesis in the Maintenance

Technologies division of MAG. During his time spent at MAG, Kyle contributed to the improvement

of workflow and quantitative evaluation by developing a workflow management system for the logistics

department and a method for the quantitative evaluation of the benefits of product-supporting services

such as ramp-up packages, tele-service or on-site maintenance personnel for the customer.

After successfully completing his studies at the Carl Benz School of Engineering, Kyle was accepted to

a Ph.D. program and is now a Ph.D. candidate in Mechanical Engineering at the Institute of Production

Science at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). He is currently involved in the research of innovative

methods for the quality management of micromanufacturing and will probably complete his Ph.D. by the

end of 2012.

We wish Kyle all the best for his future!

Tradition of Excellence

"The road to successfully completing my Bachelor Studies was extremely

challenging. I found the lectureres and professors really great and helpful.

The learning experience at HECTOR School after my graduation at CBS

can be described by one word - Excellent."

Kevin Loh Thien Seng, BSc 2008, Brunei

The positive learning experiences at the Carl Benz School of Engineering must have encouraged Kevin to go

for his Masters by joining the HECTOR School of Engineering and Management, the technology business

school of the International Department (also part of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology).

Currently enrolled in the M.Sc. program in Energy Engineering and Management, Kevin has benefitted

from the technical modules that teach the fundamentals and technical implications regarding the possibilities

of electricity production based on sustainable energy. By looking at different business models and its

finances during the management modules, Kevin gained fundamental management and entrepreneurial

skills as well as an insight to project management. There were also opportunities where Kevin learned how

to propose business ideas to potential investors. This knowledge and experience, as far as Kevin describes

it, will be helpful in case he ever sets up his own business venture in Brunei.

At the moment, Kevin is doing an internship at Lufthansatechnik and is part of the engine services department

dealing with quality management, non-destructive testing, surface technology, heat treatment,

optical and scanning electron microscopy, maintenance and chemical composition analysis.

Keep up the good work and all the best, Kevin!
