Future engineers battle it out in Europe’s largest competition

The finals of the largest student engineering competition in Europe, known as European BEST Engineering Competition (EBEC), takes place in Riga on Aug. 1-9.

Students from top universities around Europe will compete and face real problems,in real-time, facing industry and company managements.

With the motto: “Design the future. Today.” EBEC is a project that aims to bring tomorrow’s engineers together and not only develop their theoretical knowledge and skills, but also to make them think about how to tackle real world problems.

The EBEC project reaches more than 5,000 students who challenge themselves in two categories: Team Design and Case Study.

This year, 30 of the most creative and innovative teams of 4 students each, who pass through one of 87 local rounds and 15 national/regional rounds, will have the chance to prove themselves in the EBEC Final. The Final is the most grandiose part of the Engineering Competitions organized by BEST all over Europe, with this year’s being the 6th edition.

The EBEC Final 2014 is supported by organizations such as Riga Technical University, UNESCO Latvian National Commission and International Federation of Engineering Education Societies (IFEES).

BEST is a constantly growing non-profit, non-political, volunteer organization that celebrates its 25th Anniversary this year. By maintaining and developing its core activities, it enhances mobility of over a million students, and provides them with opportunities for complementary education, educational involvement and career support.

Partners include FIMA, Deutsche Bahn and the European Patent Office, with promotional partners including SKODA Auto, Yildiz Technical University, Lviv Polytechnic National University, Graz University of Technology and many others.
