European BEST Engineering Competition

Teams of 4 students will compete against each other, in 2 disciplines: Team Design and Case Study. The winner of each category gets the chance to compete against 4 other winning teams in the regional round which will also take place in Graz (EBEC Alpe-Adria).


Team Design:

In the Team Design competition participants are asked to use their “field-engineering” skills and problem-solving abilities in order to develop a functioning device capable of solving the presented problem. Team Design is one of the most appealing parts of any BEST engineering competition due to the high level of creativity involved in development of solutions, paired to the physical realization of the prototype. In addition this year this part of the competition will be sponsored by Magna Powertrain.

Case Study:

During the Case Study competition, students are given a real problem provided by our partner company KTM and they will have to use their multidisciplinary knowledge, together with a lot of creativity, to propose a solution, according to the guidelines that they will receive in the beginning. This competition involves a lot of team building, creativity and communication skills.
