CBEC 2018

 

Copenhagen BEST Engineering Competition

>> Applications for CBEC 2018 are closed! <<

Copenhagen BEST Engineering Competition (CBEC) is your chance to become an engineer for a day at Microsoft. As a team of students, you get the opportunity to test your knowledge and skills to solve a challenge proposed by a company.

CBEC Challenge 2018 for DTU students, organized by BEST Copenhagen, will be in collaboration with the Microsoft Development Center Copenhagen, the competition will take place in their headquarters in Lyngby. Of course food and drinks will be provided throughout the entire event.

CBEC Challenge takes place on the 9th and 10th of March 2018, starting on Friday. The case competition will offer a unique chance for students and Microsoft employees to meet and inspire each other. The schedule for the event is already available !

Each team will develop a functional solution to a technical problem using their knowledge, creativity and teamwork skills. Last year, the teams had to come up with an effective and innovative design focused on Knowledge Transfer, but this year will bring a totally new challenge – presented on the first day of the competition. Teams consist 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! The application deadline was February 28, 2018 – applications for CBEC 2018 are thus closed. But no worries: you can also apply for ValHacks this April!

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 or sodas?) at Microsoft’s Friday-bar in Lyngby. Furthermore, after the competition, there will be a celebratory dinner, also with Microsoft representatives, where the winners will be announced.
