Interested in following a season course organized by BEST? Below you will find answers to most of your questions, do not forget to check the FAQ if you do not find your answer below.
BEST Courses are the core activity of BEST and can either be Courses on Technology or Courses on Career related skills. These are events about one to two weeks in length, uniting technology students from all over Europe to study a technological subject. However, while these subjects are of an attractive and innovative nature, mixing various topics in engineering education, education on itself is not the only goal of these events. Equally important are expanding horizons, improving cultural understanding and, in general, providing European students of technology with the opportunity to experience something distinctive for little cost.
Courses are organized in various European countries, from Spain to Russia. They are organized all year round and divided in four different seasons (summer, autumn, winter and spring).
Courses are organized by the different Local BEST Groups (LBG’s) throughout Europe.
