This year, between 1st - 9th of August, 120 top European technical students will compete in the European BEST Engineering Competition (EBEC) Final organised by BEST (Board of European Students of Technology). EBEC Final will take place at the Warsaw University of Technology, Poland. This competition strives to involve students all around Europe for challenging themselves by gaining new practical knowledge, developing their soft, technical and analytical skills, and widen their horizons by engaging them in team based challenges.
More than 6500 students participated in the local rounds of the competition, 600 in the national or regional rounds, while the best 120 students will have a chance to meet in Warsaw in order to compete for the title of the best Engineering Student Team in Europe. They will have the chance to experience intensive teamwork, cross cultural communication and it is an enlightening opportunity to improve themselves.
EBEC Final will gather 30 teams, each composed of four students. These teams, gathered from 15 National and Regional BEST Engineering Competitions respectively, are now gearing up to face real life engineering challenges in the categories Team Design (practical solution with a physical prototype) and Case Study (hypothetical solutions for real-life problems).
European best Engineering Competition (ebec) is the biggest engineering contest in Europe with 3 levels, 30 countries, 83 leading technical universities and 6500 participants.
