  • EBEC

    Κάθε χρόνο ο σύλλογος BEST διοργανώνει τον πανευρωπαϊκό διαγωνισμό Μηχανικής: European BEST Engineering Competition - EBEC. Σε αυτόν συγκεντρώνονται οι κορυφαίοι φοιτητές μηχανικής, οι νικητές του τοπικού και εθνικού γύρου. Οι συμμετέχοντες διαγωνίζονται σε μία από δύο κατηγορίες: το Case Study ή το Team Design. Εργάζονται σε ομάδες των τεσσάρων και χρησιμοποιώντας τις τεχνολογικές, κοινωνικές και επικοινωνιακές τους ικανότητες, προβληματίζονται, διευρύνουν τους ορίζοντές τους και χρησιμοποιούν τη δημιουργικότητά τους, ώστε να βρουν μια λύση σε ένα θεωρητικό επιχειρησιακό πρόβλημα ή σε μια πρακτική ομαδική κατασκευή.

    Αυτού του είδους οι διαγωνισμοί δίνουν στους φοιτητές τη δυνατότητα να εφαρμόσουν στην πράξη τις γνώσεις μηχανικής που τους προσφέρουν οι σπουδές τους και ταυτόχρονα να αναπτύξουν τη δημιουργικότητα και ομαδικότητα τους, καθώς καλούνται να επιλύσουν διάφορα προβλήματα δουλεύοντας συλλογικά, σε ομάδες. Ο διαγωνισμός έχει τρία επίπεδα. Τα επίπεδα αυτά απαρτίζουν την πυραμίδα των διαγωνισμών μηχανικής του BEST (EBEC Pyramid). Στη βάση της βρίσκονται οι τοπικοί διαγωνισμοί μηχανικής (Local Rounds). Οι νικητές συνεχίζουν στο Εθνικό Επίπεδο (National Round). Τέλος, στην κορυφή βρίσκεται το τελικό επίπεδο του Πανευρωπαϊκού διαγωνισμού (European Round) στο οποίο συμμετέχουν οι νικητές από κάθε Εθνικό επίπεδο.

    Φέτος περίπου 5000 φοιτητές μηχανικής θα διαγωνιστούν πανευρωπαϊκά στα πανεπιστήμιά τους σε τοπικό επίπεδο. Οι νικητές από τους τοπικούς γύρους θα προκριθούν στον εθνικό γύρο. Εκεί θα κριθεί ποιες ομάδες θα συμμετάσχουν στον τελικό γύρο στην Βαρσοβία, όπου 104 κορυφαίοι φοιτητές μηχανικοί θα κυνηγήσουν το όνειρό τους να φτάσουν στην κορυφή της Ευρώπης.

    Οι τομείς που θα διαγωνιστούν οι φοιτητές σε κάθε επίπεδο είναι δύο.

    TEAM DESIGN

    Aφορά στη δημιουργία μιας κατα- σκευής ως επίλυση σε ένα τεχνικό πρόβλημα σε δεδομένο χρόνο και με συγκεκριμένα διαθέσιμα υλικά.

    CASE STUDY

    Αφορά στην επίλυση είτε ενός θεωρητικού, τεχνικού προβλήματος, είτε ενός προβλήματος management, παρουσιάζοντας στο τέλος τη βέλτιστη λύση μέσα από πολλές που χρησιμοποιήθηκαν ή θεωρήθηκαν ως πιθανές.

  • EBEC Athens

    Φέτος για τρίτη συνεχόμενη χρονιά, η τοπική ομάδα BEST Athens διοργανώνει το τοπικό επίπεδο του διαγωνισμού μηχανικής, EBEC Athens, όπου θα δώσει τη δυνατότητα σε 50 περίπου φοιτητές του Εθνικού Μετσόβιου Πολυτεχνείου να πάρουν μέρος στον Πανευρωπαϊκό αυτό θεσμό, στον μεγαλύτερο διαγωνισμό μηχανικής στην Ευρώπη.

    Οι φοιτητές θα έχουν την δυνατότητα να ανακαλύψουν και να καλλιεργήσουν τις τεχνικές και επικοινωνιακές τους ικανότητες, δουλεύοντας στα πλαίσια τετραμελούς ομάδας και χρησιμοποιώντας τη δημιουργικότητα και τη φαντασία τους προκειμένου να λύσουν ένα θεωρητικό ή τεχνικό πρόβλημα ή μια πρακτική ομαδική κατασκευή.

    Έτσι φέτος στις 20-21 Μαρτίου 2013 , θα λάβει χώρα ο τοπικός διαγωνισμός μηχανικής στους χώρους του Εθνικού Μετσόβιου Πολυτεχνείου. Έτσι, 50 περίπου διαγωνιζόμενοι θα δοκιμάσουν τις ικανότητές τους προκειμένου η τετραμελής ομάδα τους να φτάσει στο Εθνικό επίπεδο και να αναμετρηθούν με τους υπόλοιπους νικητές συναδέλφους τους από όλη την Ελλάδα. Οι νικητές του εθνικού διαγωνισμού θα αναμετρηθούν με τους 120 συναδέλφους τους από όλη την Ευρώπη προκειμένου να φτάσουν στην κορυφή της πυραμίδας.

  • BEST Events

    Throughout the year BEST organises different activities where students from member universities get the opportunity to increase their international experience, establish contacts, improve their English and have fun. Each BEST event is attended by 20-30 engineering students like you, who have something in common: they want to live a unique experience, different from day-to-day school life!

    BEST events are organised throughout the whole year. There are Seasonal events such as BEST Courses, BEST Events on Education, BEST Seasonal Engineering Competitions and BEST Leisure events. Moreover there are European BEST Engineering Competition (EBEC), Local, National and Regional BEST Engineering Competitions.

    Learn more about BEST Events.

  • Welcome to BEST Athens!

    Local BEST Group Athens had been active since 1997 and became a full member in 1998, after PM Turin. Its members are students of the National Technical University of Athens and they have brought 56 events to life, of which 22 external, 20 internal and 14 local.

  • Board of European Students of Technology

    BEST, Board of European Students of Technology, is a constantly growing non-profit and non-political organisation. Since 1989, BEST has been providing communication, cooperation and exchange opportunities for students all over Europe.

    95 Local BEST Groups in 33 countries are creating a growing, well-organised, powerful, young and innovative student network. More than 3300 members are involved in the day-to-day development of our services and almost one million students are reached through our events and initiatives.

    BEST promotes „Empowered diversity“ and helps European students of technology become more internationally minded, by reaching a better understanding of European cultures and developing the ability to work and volunteer in a global environment. Technical students are given the opportunity through BEST courses and Engineering Competitions to broaden their knowledge in topics which complement their engineering education. This also create the context in which members of the organisation can share knowledge and gain experience by organising these events.

    On the other hand, BEST also strives to broaden the job market horizons by giving opportunities through career related events (job fairs, company days, workshops) and an international career center. Last but not least, BEST has developed its own internal training system, to better sustain the organisation; therefore its members have also the opportunity to improve their skills and knowledge by participating in training events.
