EBEC (European BEST Engineering Competition) is the biggest engineering competition for students in Europe, which is annually organised by BEST. The main purpose of the event is to develop, improve and test the engineering knowledge and skills of the students and to push their limits further by solving an interdisciplinary technological challenge

In order to accomplish this, EBEC is organised as a team-based competition on 2 categories – Team Design and Case Study, and structured in a pyramidal form with 3 levels: local, national or regional and international.

TEAM DESIGN

Team Design is a practical challenge that requires design, creation and presentation of a prototype model that can successfully meet specific construction and operation criteria, all done in a limited amount of time and through the use of limited resource materials.

CASE STUDY

Case Study is a theoretical problem-solving challenge. Its solution requires the analysis, creation and presentation of a technological solution for a current engineering, economical and social problem, all within a limited amount of time and resources..

EBEC - Local

The EBEC story starts every year in the autumn, in 84 cities from 34 European countries.

In our region – Romania & Republic of Moldova, the local rounds take place in 5 the most important technical university centers, which host a BEST group, more exactly Bucharest, Brasov, Iasi, Cluj-Napoca and Chisinau.

All the participating students of this cities need to show their creativity, teamwork and management skills in order to achieve all the practical, real-situations related tasks, that only a great engineer can resolve.

The final result –  a new network of talented, passionate and keen on involvement students finding, at least theoretically, new solutions to the problems of the local community.

EBEC - Regional

Every year, the best teams from the local rounds, in each category – Team Design and Case Study, meet together to face new challenges of national level.   

In whole Europe, 15 National and Regional Rounds prepare the participants to design a better future.

For us – Romania & Republic of Moldova, the regional round will take place, this year in Bucharest, on 9-13 May 2019.

The best 10 teams from Cluj-Napoca, Iasi, Chisinau, Brasov, and of course, Bucharest will work on finding the best solutions or ways of improvement for the presented situations.

EBEC - Final

The Final Round of EBEC is the most prestigious round of EBEC Pyramid, gathering the best 120 students who have won their Local Round, advanced to their National-Regional Round and by winning, it gained the access to the diamond head of EBEC: the Final Round.

Highly talented and skilled students immerse in a dynamic, multicultural and innovative environment where students, companies and universities share and gain knowledge about the world of tech.

A world, wherein the last EBEC Final Edition, the teams from Romania & Republic of Moldova were winners on both Team Design and Case Study Categories.

This year, the final will take place in Torino, on 24th of July to 1st of August 2019.
