The Engineering Competitions from BEST are based of a Canadian competition first held in 2002. In May 2004, the first Engineering Competition was held in Lisbon, and since then it has received great praise from both participants, professors and companies.
EBEC (European BEST Engineering Competition) is an international engineering competition between the students of the universities that are part of BEST, and consists of three phases: the local (where EBEC Lisbon is located), the national / regional and the European final.
Thia engineering competition is divided into two categories: Team Design (TD) and Case Study (CS). The teams participating in EBEC Lisbon (local phase) are competing to qualify for EBEC Portugal (national phase), to be held in Porto, before the European Grand Final, in Brno, Czech Republic.
