European BEST Engineering Competition (EBEC) is a 3 level, team-based competition, on 2 categories - Team Design and Case Study. In Team Design teams are solving tasks within a limited time and a limited availability of materials. The desired outcome is a device that has to perform the needed actions. In 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 technology fields, regardless of status of their degree, and tasks they're solving are provided by BEST and company partners. The team which proves to be the most efficient, creative and successful solution at the end of competition finale is granted by “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 it's end in the Final Round of EBEC - event that is organised in 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.
