European BEST Engineering Competition (EBEC) is the largest real-time based engineering competition conducted by Board of European Students of Technology (BEST), gathering best European students of engineering. With EBEC Project BEST aims to develop participants skills thus not only theoretical knowledge also their practical knowledge which will help them to tackle problems which humanity faces each day. Project brings together students, universities, companies and NGOs (Non-governmental organizations).

The idea of Engineering Competitions was brought into Europe in 2002

The first real experience with an Engineering Competition (EC), came in March 2002 when some members of BEST went to the Canadian Engineering Competition (CEC) organised by the Canadian Federation of Engineering Students (CFES). They came back very enthusiastic and started to promote the idea for a similar BEST event
