OK, you have now watched this video and may also be quite interested. But you still have some questions in your mind. The first question is how expensive is this programme and if it is really worth spending that much. The next question you are thinking obviously is whether or not it would be possible for you to make it to CBS.

No doubt, it is some what expensive to study at CBS as compared to other normal universities in Germany. However, you should treat this expense more as ‘investment’ for a bright future instead of ‘cost’ since CBS education is a guarantee of a successful international career. The tuition fee at CBS is Euro 14,000 per year, so you pay Euro 7000 for each semester. With all other misc. and living expenses, you need to budget for Euro 20,000 or more per yer. I would say, you should be  prepared for this at least for the first  year to allow you to focus on your studies well.

Your next question of whether you can really make it to this international school or not can be answered in affirmative if you have been consistently performing very well in your school, especially in your final years of school in three main subjects, Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics. Further, if you otherwise qualify well, we provide you free counselling to draft and lodge your winning application. We simply love to advise and give you useful tips on how to prepare your application pack so that you stand out in the crowd and get a favourable decision.

Advantage of Studying at CBS: One direct advantage of entering into CBS in Germany (instead of any other university in Germany) is that you can straight away be admitted into graduation programme of CBS after your 10+2  during the month of August, whereas most other universities in Germany require 13 years of schooling before giving admission to any course, for which you may be required to do an extra year known as bridge year programme. So, you save one year.  Further, CBS’s engineering degree – BSc. Mechanical Engineering takes only 3.5 years whereas you would spend at least 4 years, even if you study in India.

Further, the atmosphere at CBS is highly international. There are about 40-50 seats altogether against which CBS gets applications from all over the world, Vietnam, China, Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, Mexico, Canada, USA, Brazil etc. etc. So, if you are one of lucky students to get admission in CBS, you are immersed in an international atmosphere and get to interact and make friends with different nationalities from day 1.

If you really feel interested to grab this ‘once in a life-time’ opportunity for casting yourself in an exciting international engineering career, please pick up your phone and connect me at 91-11-45630873 and brief me about your achievements till date, your talents and pursuits and what ambitions you wish to fulfill in your life.

Believe me, if you can really impress me with your overture and if you really are a deserving chap, I am most interested to talk to you and can put all my skills and energies to see that you are projected as a potentially one of the best students that can be recruited from India.

I am waiting for your call.

On the other hand, if you still want to know more about studying mechanical engineering in Karlsruhe, better watch the following video – Mechanical Engineering in Karlsruhe.

Or perhaps you are getting curious to know more about the Carl Benz’s creation ~130 years ago that gave birth to the automotive industry of today, then better watch the following video – Benz Patent Motorwagen (1886) – the first car ever – explained.

That is not all! You may also be interested that the replica of Carl Benz’s masterpiece are now being routiney made in India by none other than engineering students like you. Interested to know more? watch this video: Carl Benz’s masterpiece – now Made in India.

THE FUTURE OF AUTOMOBILE IS HERE

On 29 January 1886 Carl Benz applied to the Imperial Patent Office in Berlin for the most significant patent of the industrial age: a “motorised vehicle powered by a gas engine” – the initial idea behind all further automobile designs in the century that followed.

As the inventor of the automobile, Mercedes-Benz continues to press forward with the development of mobility in all areas. The company’s expertise at both a technical and a conceptual level is underscored by more than 90,000 registered patents, together with a long list of innovations that were first introduced to the market in models from Mercedes – these range from engines to safety, comfort and design features. The absolute state of the art of automotive development in all these areas is reflected by the new E-Class.


The new E-Class as the next stage of automotive evolution

The new Mercedes-Benz E-Class marks the beginning of a new phase in automotive development: “For Mercedes, as the inventor of the automobile, it was always clear that the next great revolution in mobility would be the self-driving car”, notes Dr Dieter Zetsche, Chairman of the Board of Management of Daimler AG and Head of Mercedes-Benz Cars. People have been dreaming of self-driving cars since the 1950s. Carl Benz was the one who turned the vision of mobility without a horse into reality. Now it is Mercede Benz offering the possibility of managing without a driver as well.

The automobile of the future

In this, the 130th year since Carl Benz invented the motor car, there is one thing about which Dr Dieter Zetsche is certain: “The best is still to come for the car sporting the three-pointed star. The Mercedes of the future will drive not only with zero emissions, but autonomously, too. It will be even safer, even more luxurious and fully networked as well. A comfortable retreat for the journey between office and home – a place to work, communicate, relax and enjoy.”

Replica of 1886 Benz Motorwagen leaves Coimbatore on the longest drive

COIMBATORE: The 1886 Benz Motorwagen – the world’s first horseless carriage — was designed to drive for a maximum of 15 minutes. But, on Wednesday, the Gedee Group attempted to drive a replica of the car for 500km from Coimbatore to Chennai — the longest drive by the car in a single stretch.

Avid car collector and automobile enthusiast Manvendra Singh (Rana of Barwani, Indore) flagged off the ride from the Gedee Car Museum at 4.30pm on Wednesday. He also drove the car up to the Neelambur Toll Plaza, which is close to 30Km from the museum.

“It is an honour to be part of a historic ride like this. The car is an example of excellent engineering and to be able to recreate it with the same precision and quality is a hallmark in itself,” said Singh before beginning the ride. Singh also owns an 1886 Benz Motorwagen designed by the Gedee Group.

The car was designed by Carl Benz and was patented in 1886. Until now, the record for the longest drive in the car was held by Carl’s wife Bertha Benz. She drove from Mannheim to Pforzheim and back travelling 194Km along with her sons, Eugen and Richard.

“With this ride she proved the feasibility of the car as a means of travel,” said G D Gopal, chairman of G D Naidu Charities.

The Gedee Group started designing replicas of the car in 2012, and the first car was ready in 2013. Following a series of trial runs and appreciation by experts across the globe, G D Gopal decided to attempt longer distances.

On June 13 this year, the group attempted to drive the car up to Salem covering 165km in almost nine hours. “Having successfully completed this ride, we gained confidence that we will be able to ride a longer distance. So, we decided that we will drive the car up to Chennai,” G D Gopal said.

The car will travel for almost 30 hours to reach Chennai at 10.30pm on Friday. The G D Group has organised a convoy to travel along with the car to Chennai.

A total of 50l fuel (Benzene) and close to 100l (water) for coolant is being carried by the convoy.”Six drivers will be a part of the ride, and we will change the drivers every 30km. These drivers are experienced and were a part of the ride to Salem,” said assistant general manager, operations, UMS Technologies Limited, N Ramaraj, who is also accompanying the team for the ride.

The car will be received by the commissioner of tourism and managing director, Tamil Nadu Tourism Development Corporation, Har Sahay Meena, and Consul General of Germany, Chennai, Achim Fabig, in Chennai on Friday.

Student Speak – 4 – Isha Gandhi (India)

Isha Gandhi - 2013 Intake

Mechanics in High School has always been a subject of interest for me. I like the fact that it‘s a more tangible application of maths and science, although I enjoy both as subjects on their own. Mechanical Engineering is also a very broad and generalized field that would allow me to later pursue various other interests such as Energy and Product Design.

I was always keen on pursuing my undergraduate studies abroad. Germany offered me the ideal opportunity by giving me the chance to combine both my academic as well as my cultural interests. After much research, I came across Carl Benz School which seemed to be a perfect fit. It offered exactly what I was looking for, so without hesitation my parents and I decided to commit. I like that it offers exposure in many different ways, whether it be work-related or people-related. The program is very well-structured, and the majority of the subjects are very interesting, although definitely not easy rides.

On top of all that, the central location of the International Department, where CBS is located, is perfect, with an amazing view of the Karlsruhe Palace!

Living in Germany so far has been an enriching experience for me, and continues to help me grow as an individual on a daily basis. I‘ve grown very fond of Karlsruhe and the friendliness of the people here. The KIT campus has a very nice and pleasant atmosphere and that always acts as a motivating factor for my studies here. In fact, I spend so much time at the KIT library; it has almost become my second home!

Nothing is set in stone as I am still in the early stage of my bachelor‘s, but upon graduation from CBS, I would like to obtain some work experience before proceeding to a masters. I‘m looking to go into the field of sustainable development and renewable energies. Ultimately, my goal is to start and develop my own business.
