About EBEC Alpe-Balkan

European BEST Engineering Competition - EBEC is the

biggest engineering competition in Europe organized by

students for students in 32 countries.

EBEC Alpe-Balkan is one of the 15 regional rounds and due

to COVID-19 global pandemic, the competition will happen

online in May. During the event, 32 local round winners will

compete in two categories: Team Design and Case Study, while

the jury and organizers will be able to join in any moment to the

live stream and monitor the progress of the contestants. After

their work is done, the teams will have a chance to present the

outcomes online in front of a jury, professors and organizers.

On the last day of the competition, our task partners can

announce the best teams who will represent this region in the

final round of EBEC.

Case Study

Every team has to study a certain real-life or imaginary

corporate or other problem and provide a well-described set

of solutions for handling such an issue. Problems can be either

technical or management oriented by nature.

The results are evaluated by a jury, after presentations made

by each team. For example, one of Case Study tasks set at

previous EBEC competitions was “Design the Feature of the

Future” improving one of the world’s top web browsers.

Team Design

Every team has to design and construct a prototype that

should satisfy competition requirements. The teams have

a certain time limit and have to use tools and materials

provided by their local BEST group or materials they have

at home. Therefore, they need to use creativity, technical

comprehension and skills in order to accomplish tasks and

pass final testing in front of a jury. The criteria for evaluating

the outcomes are predetermined and will be communicated

with the participants beforehand. For example, a good Team

Design task would be to create the most efficient oil rig whose

efficiency would be tested by pumping water and oil solution.
