A series of lectures of 30 minutes each will provide a comprehensive insight into the professional field and the job profile of mechanical engineers. The speakers include KIT graduates with different lengths of professional experience. Their professional career led them either directly after their studies or only after their doctorate to a company in the free economy. KIT Mechanical Engineering Day also integrates the Faculty Festival Colloquium. Faculty awards and honors are presented there. The keynote lecture is also the highlight of the lecture series.


For students

Visit the lecture forum and find out about the job description of a mechanical engineer. In the info events, you will receive valuable information on how to orient your studies internationally.

The Institute Fair is aimed in particular at students at the end of the Bachelor's program who would like to find out about specializations and concentrations in the Master's program. Booths with information about specializations in the Master's program are marked.
