Structure of EBEC Challenge

Structure of EBEC

European BEST Engineering Competition (EBEC) is a 3-level, team-based competition, consisting of 2 categories: Team Design and Case Study. In the Team Design category, teams are challenged to solve tasks within a limited period of time and a limited amount of materials. The desired outcome is a system that has to perform the required actions. In the Case Study category, contestants need to provide a solution to a technical or management problem and present the outcome they reached. Teams are composed of 4 students from technical fields, regardless of the status of their degree, and the problems they’re solving are provided by both BEST and partner companies. The team providing the most efficient, creative and successful solution at the end of the competition is granted the “BEST Engineers of Europe” title.

Every year, EBEC project begins with the first Local Round of EBEC that is organised by the one of the 97 lbgs all over Europe, followed by other Local Rounds of EBEC, winners of which then continue to National/Regional Rounds of EBEC and reach the Final Round of EBECan 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 compete in the 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, making this event happen is only possible with the support of universities, different institutions, companies, media and others who recognise the enthusiasm of these students and realise how important this competition can be in developing a 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
