EBEC Gothenburg 2019

Prove that you’re the BEST engineer in Europe – participate in EBEC 2019

EBEC is back to Chalmers on 27 – 28 March!
Rumor has it that this year we are collaborating with MathWorks. Don’t have any experience in Matlab? Don’t worry – come and learn on the spot! The competition is open for all Chalmers students

The European BEST Engineering Competition, EBEC, is a challenging event to test your technical knowledge in creating innovative solutions. The winners at Chalmers will proceed to the regional competition in Uppsala and have the chance to go all the way to the final round in Turin, Italy, and take home the title of being the BEST engineers of Europe.

This year we will have a Team design task (on the 28th) and a Matlab challenge (on the 27th) for the Case Study category. Both days the competition will take place from 8 am to 13 pm. You compete in teams of four students who currently are studying at Chalmers University of Technology. You can be from any disciplinary at Chalmers. Having a mixed team is a strength but not a necessity. If you don’t have a team you can still sign up. Need more team mates or have any other questions? Don’t hesitate to contact us on facebook or gothenburg@best.eu.org. Remember: all members of the team need to apply and have to be present for the whole case study.


What is EBEC? EBEC is a European BEST engineering competition that comprises of 3 rounds: Local (here in Gothenburg), Regional (Uppsala), Final (Torino)
What is Team Design?It’s a creative engineering task where you will have to build a structure or device from given materials (e.g. build an airplane from a sheet of paper).
What is a Case Study with Matlab?It’s a Matlab challenge made of several taks, followed by a more creative task and short presentation of your solution.
What if I don’t know Matlab?Matlab tasks will be designed to fit all levels. It will start with easy introductory questions and the difficulty will gradually increase. The final task will require some creative solutions based on the introductory questions. 
What do I get from this?One word : experience! The winners of each category will get a chance to go to the Regional Round in Uppsala and compete with other teams from Lund, Copenhagen, Kaunas, Riga and Uppsala. Maybe you can even reach the final round in Torino!
Will there be food? πŸ˜€Yes. Lunch for day 1 and fika for both days will be provided!
Do we need to participate on both days?No. But we highly recommend (double the chances to win, right?). Just choose the category you want to participate in when registering.
Should I register?Yes! Right now. πŸ™‚

Are you ready to take the challenge? Application is open until 15th of March.
