About EBEC

European BEST Engineering Competition (EBEC) is a team competition consisting of 3 rounds, and 2 categories – Innovative Design and Case Study.

The teams are made of 4 students from technology fields, regardless of the status of their degree, and tasks they are solving are provided by BEST and company partners. The team which proves to be the most efficient, creative and successful at the end of the competition finale is granted by “BEST Engineers of Europe” title.

EBEC project begins every year with the first Local Round of EBEC that is organised in Europe, followed by other Local Rounds of EBEC as well as National/Regional rounds of EBEC and reaches its end in the Final Round of EBEC – event that is organised at 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 the Final Round of EBEC.


This year the 15th annual EBEC (European BEST Engineering Competition) is being held, from 25th to 27th February 2022.  in an online version.

EBEC is an event that has, through years, given young and prospective engineers an opportunity to, by solving a variety of problems, show and improve their already existing professional skills or develop new ones.

For all the knowledge they show and develop, the participants get suggestions and comments from field professionals, guaranteeing that said knowledge is applicable in real working environments.

‘EBEC Niš – Days of the engineers’ is the first step in the competition, which is followed by a Regional and a Final Round. 


Case Study

In Case Study, your team will have a task to create a theoretical solution to a problem based on an economical, logistical, engineering or corporate topic, after which you will present your solution to a jury judges.

Victory depends not only from the quality of the solution, but also from the quality of the presentation.

Innovative Design

In Innovative Design your team has to create a new technological design or improve upon an existing one, and then, through a proffesional presentation, show technical,social,environmental, and economic impact of your design.

Victory depends not only from the quality of the design but also from the quality of the presentation.
