The EBEC (European BEST Engineering Competition) is an european engineering competition organized by BEST in all the Universities in which BEST is present.
The engineering competition will take place February 21st and 22nd 2018 in the Escuela Técnica Superior de Ingenieros de Caminos, Canales y Puertos of the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid. Students that feel like proving their knowledge and skills will try to resolve, in 4-people teams, a problem related to engineering.
The local round winners will pass to the national round that will be hosted in Madrid, in which they will have the chance to represent their university and defy their capabilities in a new challenge.
This competition has two categories: Team Design and Case Study:
Team Design. It consists in solving the problem related to engineering in a practical way. For this purpose, participants will have to use tools and materials that will be given to them in order to design and build a prototype which will be shown in front of the jury.
Case Study. The participants of this cathegory will solve an enginering problem in a theoretical way. In this way, they will show their analitical mind when they face a real business case, such as the ones that companies face daily.
