About EBEC Belgrade

EBEC Belgrade represents the local round of European BEST Engineering Competition organised by Local BEST Group Belgrade. This contest is intended for students of technical-technological and natural-mathematical faculties of the University of Belgrade. EBEC Belgrade helps students develop their engineering skills as well as presentation skills. They are competing in four-member teams in two categories - Team Design and Case Study. The winners in both categories go to the Regional round of EBEC competition- EBEC Balkan.

Besides the competition part, students have a chance to attend workshops and trainings organised by our sponsors and partners, and to visit the Science Fair where they can see Road Arrow´s formula, Euro robots, Flying simulator, and many other things.

Competition Categories

Team Design

Contestants have a task to design and create the prototip using the given material. Teams present their prototips and solutions to the jury. In the previous years, students had the opportunity to create their catapult, hoverboard and different types of vehicles. This is the category that gives the opportunity to students to show their creativity, team work, and engineering knowledge that every engineer has to possess.

Case Study

This category gives students the chance to show their analyticity, creativity and presentation skills through solving the engineering-managerial problem. In the previous years, contestants had the opportunity to create a smart house, evacuation plan and to develop innovative packaging for water.

EBEC Balkan

Winners from both categories go to the regional round of EBEC competition - EBEC Balkan where they need to compete with the best engineers from 8 Balkan cities: Belgrade, Novi Sad, Niš, Sofia, Podgorica and Mostar. Regional round is hosted by a different city every year. Belgrade had the honor to host the first EBEC Balkan in 2010. Last time EBEC Balkan was organised in Belgrade in 2015 when we had the chance to gather the best young engineers from our region. The EBEC Balkan winners go to the Final round of EBEC competition - EBEC Final.

EBEC Final

The final round of European BEST Engineering Competition - EBEC Final gathers the winners from 15 regional rounds. During these 7 days, 30 teams are competing for the tittle ˝The best European Engineers˝. This competition became the tradition all because of the amazing students and their hard work, commitment and the will to make the opportunities for developing students. The tenth edition of EBEC Final (EBEC X) was organised in Torino in july 2019.

We are very proud of the fact that LBG Belgrade was a host EBEC Final in 2016 with 120 young engineers and more than 200 organisers from all around Europe.
