European BEST Engineering Competition

EBEC stands for European BEST Engineering Competition and is the largest European student engineering competition. It is held at 84 European universities and is divided into local rounds, regional rounds, and a final round. 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 other 4 winning teams in the regional round, which this year will take place in Maribor (Slovenia) between the 17th and the 20th of May 2019 where the winning team will proceed to EBEC Final taking place in July in Turin (Italy).

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 the development of solutions, paired with the physical realization of the prototype.

Case Study:

During the Case Study competition, students are given a real problem 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.
