The European BEST Engineering Competition (EBEC) is an engineering contest that is organized by BEST. The main goal is to engage students in team based challenges. There are different rounds in the competition. The first round is organized by the local BEST groups at their respective universities. The winners pass to the second (national) round and eventually to the final round. In 2013, the final round took place in Warsaw, Poland.
How big is EBEC?
More than 6500 students from 83 leading universities in 30 countries participate in the local rounds of the competition, 600 in the national or regional rounds, while the best 120 students compete in the final round for the title of the best Engineering Student Team in Europe.
