International Studies in Mechanical Engineering (ISIM)

ISIM is the international service point for students and staff of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering.

International experience is an important component of a qualified higher education. A successful subject-related stay abroad requires suitable partnerships with foreign universities, coordinated study programmes and targeted course content. In an effort to offer students of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering the widest range of opportunities for studying abroad, ISIM provides ongoing advice and support for outgoing students in the prepartion of and the carrying out of their subject- and study-related stays abroad. Incoming students as well as guest students can find orientation here for an easier entry into studying at KIT. ISIM is the first point of contact for faculty staff in questions concerning international exchange programs, new partnerships with foreign universities, and their own stays abroad such as lecturer and staff mobility within the framework of ERASMUS+.

International afternoon

The International Afternoon of the KIT Faculty of Mechanical Engineering takes place once a year in the first half of November. By attending this event, students of mechanical engineering can get a comprehensive overview of all possibilities of a study-related stay abroad within a short time. Both the faculty's own programs and general exchange or internship opportunities are presented. The programs are briefly explained by the respective program officers and there is usually enough time for questions. At the end of the event - in good time before the application phase begins - you will have all the basic information you need about exchange programmes as well as the opportunities for internships or thesis work abroad.
