Structure of EBEC Challenge
Structure of EBEC
European BEST Engineering Competition (EBEC) is a 3-level, team-based competition, in 2 categories – Team Design and Case Study. In the Team Design category, teams are solving tasks within a limited period of time and a limited availability of materials. The desired outcome is a device that has to perform the needed actions. In the Case Study category, contestants need to provide a solution to a technical or a management problem and to present the outcome they came up with. Teams are composed of 4 students from technological fields, regardless of status of their degree, and tasks they’re solving are provided by BEST and company partners. The team which provides the most efficient, creative and successful solution at the end of the competition finale is granted with “BEST Engineers of Europe” title.
EBEC project begins every year by the first Local round of EBEC that is organized in Europe, followed by other Local rounds of EBEC as well as National/Regional rounds of EBEC and reaches its end in the Final Round of EBEC – event that is organised at the beginning of August. The winning teams from Local rounds progress to National/regional rounds and the winning teams from national and regional rounds are competing in Final round of EBEC.
The Regional Round of the European BEST Engineering Competition – EBEC Balkan is an event organized by local BEST groups from Belgrade, Mostar, Novi Sad, Nis, Podgorica, Skopje, and Sofia. Before the Regional Round, there are seven local qualifying rounds, one in each of these cities.
This year the regional competition will be held in Novi Sad from 9th to 13th of May 2019, and will gather 56 students from the Balkans.
Therefore, the realization of it is only possible with the support of universities, different institutions, companies, media and others who recognize the enthusiasm of these students and realize how important this competition can be in developing one student’s life. Improvement of engineering practical and theoretical skills, building team spirit and making the students be unique and creative, are only some of the benefits of this project.
