Harder, faster, Stuttgart - Automobile engineering

General description

This autumn, Stuttgart will burn some rubber, as we hold our course on fast cars and everything that has to do with it. German engineering is among the BEST in the world, and has been for quite some time.

From the first motor-powered horse carts, to the economic cars of today, German inventors and engineers came up with some cool stuff, such as the first silver arrows, the quad-drive for rally cars and the long-range race cars dominating the LeMans, Dakar and many other races around the world. We will introduce you to the fascination that has been fuelling dreams for over a century. You will learn what it takes to build really fast cars, from the tires, gearbox up to power train and aerodynamics.

So if you're interested in cars or just want to find out how hard Stuttgart can party, don't be shy, just send us your motivation letter and let the race begin...
