EBEC (European BEST Engineering Competition) is an European-wide engineering competition organised by 88 universities in Europe.

Teams that are composed of 4 students from technology fields, regardless of status of their degree, are challenged to solve the tasks that are provided by organizers or companies. EBEC project begins functioning every year by the first Local EBEC Round; afterwards moving onwards with National/Regional EBEC Rounds and the winners of the National/Regional rounds compete in EBEC Final.

Case Study (CS) is a theoretical problem-solving challenge. Its solution requires the analysis, creation and presentation of a technological solution for a current engineering, economic and social problem, all within a limited amount of time and resources.
