"Team work, collaboration, drive and a good spirit trumps big resources every day. Big time."
Humans of EBEC
"The high quality achieved and the high standards set, despite being a bunch of college kids with no outstanding resources."
"I am proud of a great atmosphere created for participants to find themselves, to show their abilities and to create their future."
"I’m most proud of my team, Topicantes. Neither for their skills, nor the workload we had to deal with in order to deliver topics of high quality."
"I don't think I could even begin describing what EBEC means to me, as it's been by far the best experience of my life."
"I’ve realized that volunteering on such a high scale is really preparing you for what comes next and the challenges I’ve met along the journey were definitely pushing myself beyond my limits."
"Being part of the organization of two years of EBEC gave me the ability to control any event of my professional and personal life."
"EBEC brings the best engineers from all over Europe together and challenges them. With a true team spirit, they give everything they can during 4 competition days and solve the problems in ingenious ways."
"I would say being able to handle a huge project together with people from the hosting LBG, international teams and any other BESTies who have contributed to EBEC."
"Human Relations can move the world. Knowledge can be taught. Experience can be gained. But attitude, character and personality gives us the power to do our job better than anything, which, coupled with others, will empower us to do more and be better."
"EBEC is a huge event, a fantastic chance for both participants and organizers to get out of their comfort zones, test their limits and show their talent. "
"It does not matter where you are, what matters is the communication between people involved in the project."
"Never make changes in the work you have being preparing for months the rght night before the day you are going to present it."
"One man can do anything, 100 people can do everything that never occurred to that man."
"EBEC is energy, EBEC is life… EBEC is a passion for building something truly remarkable and having fun in the process."
"Communication is a key in project management. It can ruin the project, or make a huge success out of it; communication management is frequently the only difference between the former and the latter."
"It is hard to put into words what this project means to me as a person. The reason is the huge potential and creativity as a unique concept in the students' world."
"EBEC is one of the greatest achievements of my life, and it will always be a significant part of my life."
"I had a chance to be in all of the EBEC rounds (local, national and Final) and it is, definitely, a blast!"
"I hadn't done anyhting before like being in EBEC Team. For me EBEC it was a very great event and I was not completely sure that I would be able to handle it although I was highly motivated. At the end I found out that with motivation and effort it was possible to achieve anything I want."
"I am most proud of the people who organise it. A bunch of university students with the same dream, following the same goals."
"The event per se is just the tip of the iceberg! You have to work behind the scenes for a really long time in order to be ready in august."
That nothing is impossible. For example volunteers from all over Europe, organising the biggest engineering competition in the old continent. We made it possible. We are continuing to make it possible. We will make it possible forever.
"Organizing EBEC taught me very valuable and versatile project management and teamwork skills; I apply these sills in my professional life daily."
"I am proud of the people from Brno, all the international organizers and how much effort, time and money they invested in this event. Honestly, the result was one the most satisfying things that one can witness when working on a project for more than a year."
"For me, EBEC means empowerment. It means the opportunity of getting to work with people from different countries, with different backgrounds, cultures and values that gather for the unique purpose of giving students from all over Europe the opportunity to prove themselves in an international context."
