Design the future. Today.

The sense of innovation, combining creativity with technicality and efficient teamwork. During EBEC Challenge you can put all of these skills to the test and lead your own team to victory, or at least to an evening full of fun and challenges.

The concept of EBEC Challenge.

EBEC Challenge consists of 88 local rounds, 15 regional or national. round. The winning team of each round gets prizes and a ticket for the next round. Maybe your team will even make it to the EBEC Challenge Benelux!

Meet the Team Design.

The Team Design is where teams will have to use basic materials (wood, springs, magnets, nails...) and tools (glue gun, saw, drill…)to build a prototype that satisfies a given problem as best as possible. Points awarded for the ingenuity, durability and performance of your prototype. For example, last years challenge in the EBEC Benelux round was to build a rocket, fired in the air up to 25 m. In the rocket an egg was placed that had to survive the impact of the fall.
Do you have a creative yet practical mindset that can solve problems like no other? Then the Team Design will put your engineering skills to the test!

Check out our Case Study.

The Case Study is a more abstract problem that typically applies to real life situations. Your team will have to think of ways to solve a theoretical problem or create a plan on how to apply specific technologies. The only constraint will be your own imagination when looking for the ultimate solution for e.g. drone applications, adaptable buildings or the digital highway.
Got a knack for solution oriented thinking? Then participating in the Case Study might just be the perfect challenge for you!

We provide snacks!

To keep you going regardless of which challenge you're facing, we will be refueling your team with free snacks, such as croques, throughout the competition. Thirsty? The bar will serve you refreshing drinks as much as you like! After a few hours of hard work, enjoy the reception where you can discuss the evening with your fellow students, get in touch with our partners or get to know BEST in general.
