EBEC local 2017


Want to challenge yourself in becoming the best engineering student in Europe? Then EBEC is certainly for you!Challenge yourself -- apply now!

The local level of the biggest real time engineering competition in Europe will take place at Chalmers 27 – 28 March! The European BEST Engineering Competition, EBEC, is a challenging event to test your technical knowledge in creating innovative solutions.

This year the local EBEC theme is on Industry 4.0 and Internet of Things (IoT) in collaboration with TELE2 and Chalmers University of Technology. The winners at Chalmers will proceed to the regional competition at Lund University (21 – 25 April) and have the chance to go all the way to the final in Brno Czech Republic and take home the title of being the BEST engineers of Europe. Last year the Chalmers team came second, this year we hope to win!

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 or need more team mates you can contact us on facebook or gothenburg@best.eu.org to help you team up with other applicants. Remember: all members of the team need to apply and have to be present for the whole case study.

To apply, you need to create an account a www.best.eu.org and apply to EBEC Chalmers 2017 at https://best.eu.org/event/localDetails.jsp?event=e2zydd2
