Belgrade days of engineers - EBEC Belgrade
“Meet the future, awaken your creativity, be successful!”
Belgrade days of engineers - EBEC Belgrade (European BEST Engineering Competition) is a project aimed at students from technical-technological, natural science and mathematical faculties at the University of Belgrade. By partaking in the local round of the competition students will be contending in the two categories - Team Design and Case Study. This year, the tenth annual “Days of engineers” will be from the 9th to 13th of March at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering.
Students will get a chance to not only develop their engineering, but also their presentation skills by listening to numerous workshops and training sessions that are being held as part of the competition.
Team Design represents one of the most creative type of competing as students solve a specific engineering problem by constructing a device that can perform a specific function such as a forklift, catapult or musical instrument.
By doing this students have a chance to showcase their knowledge, creativity, teamwork as well as many other skills that can be attributed to a young engineer.
Students compete in teams of four.
Case Study enables students to improve their skills by solving and presenting their solution of a specific technical or technical-managerial problem, by using their previous experience and acquired knowledge.
Teams are made up for participants.
Winners of the local round, qualify for the regional EBEC Balkan championship (Balkan Regional Engineering Competition) that will be held in Mostar. Afterwards, the winners of that competition go to the European BEST Engineering Competition that will be held in Brno this year.
Last year, Belgrade had the honor to host the final round of the competition - EBEC Final, at which winners of regional and national competitions throughout Europe, so that we can safely say that in 2016. Belgrade was the youth capital of engineering. More than 6500 student started their journeys at their perspective local rounds, and only 120 of the best managed to secure a place in the final, amongst which were students from University of Belgrade. In 2015. Belgrade was the host of the regional round of the competition - EBEC Balkan, that had participants that managed to win their local rounds from Belgrade, Nis, Novi Sad, Skopje, Mostar and Podgorica.
At the final of the competition in Riga, in 2014, competitors from the University of Belgrade managed to secure third place. While their colleagues from the University of Novi Sad at the final competition in Porto in 2015 were third in the category Case Study.
