European BEST Engineering Competition

 

European BEST Engineering Competition (EBEC) is the biggest engineering competition in Europe. Students have the opportunity to test their knowledge and skills and compete with fellow students in solving challenges proposed by companies. The local round, organized by BEST Copenhagen, is the first qualifying round, and our local winners will go on to compete against the winners from the rest of the Nordic region. The winners of EBEC Nordic continue to compete against engineering students from all over Europe in the final!

EBEC Copenhagen takes place March 3-4 and is organized in collaboration with Microsoft. This offers a unique chance for students and employees to meet and inspire each other. The challenge will be in the category Team Design, where each team will develop a functional solution to a technical problem using their knowledge, creativity and teamwork skills. Each team consists of four members, and as programming will be involved to some extent, at least one member must have an IT background. So gather your friends or apply in smaller groups (or individually) and we will team you up!

Apart from the competition, where you will present your solution and get feedback from judges from Microsoft, all participants are invited for an evening of fun and networking (maybe over a couple of beers?) at Microsoft’s Friday-bar in their headquarters in Lyngby. Furthermore, after the competition, there will be a celebratory dinner, also with Microsoft representatives, where the winners will be announced.

In addition to the chance of participating in EBEC Nordic, the winners of the local round will be awarded with prizes – last year it was an Xbox or Lumia, so lots of great prizes are at stake, if your team has what it takes to win!
