The EBEC Final is the most grandiose part of the Engineering Competitions organised by BEST all over Europe, having the 5th edition this year. Nowadays, Engineering Competitions are the most popular BEST event among young engineers, offering them the opportunity to express their creativity, compete and face realistic problems of industry or management.

This year, 120 inventive engineering students were chosen out of more than 5,000 participants through two intensive elimination rounds: 83 local and 15 national/regional rounds. The best 30 teams of 4 students each proved to be ready for the EBEC Final by facing real life engineering challenges in the 2 categories: Team Design (practical solution with a physical prototype) and Case Study (hypothetical solutions for real-life problems).
