EBEC is the BEST Engineering Competition in Europe, conducted by students for students. Teams that are composed by 4 students from technology fields, regardless of status of their degree, are challenged to solve the tasks that are provided by BEST in 3 different competition levels. The team which proves to be the most efficient, creative and successful at the end of competition finale is granted by “BEST Engineers of Europe” title. EBEC project begins functioning every year by the first Local EBEC Round that is conducted in Europe; afterwards moving onwards with several other Local EBEC Rounds as well as National/Regional EBEC Rounds and reaches an end by a EBEC Final event that is organised in beginning of August. EBEC 2018 is a newly designed formula, where EBEC Final is not organised, but instead Team Design and Case Study tasks during National/Regional Rounds should be connected with World-Wide topic.
Team Design (TD) is a practical, hands-on, project-based challenge that requires design, construction and presentation of a prototype model that can successfully meet specific construction and operation criteria. The model must be created within a limited amount of time and through the use of basic tools and low-cost, limited materials.
Case Study (CS) is a theoretical, problem-solving challenge that requires analysis, research, discussion, testing and presentation of a solution for a current economical, legal or social problem. The solution must be provided within a limited amount of time.
