WHAT IS EBEC?
APPLICATION TILL 13th MARCH
The European BEST Engineering Competition (EBEC) is one of the biggest engineering competitions of its kind in the world! In this competition students from all over Europe have the opportunity to challenge their communication, interpersonal and creativity skills by choosing 1 out of the 2 categories in teams of 4:
You are given two theoretical problems and through research and information analysis you are asked to present the most optimal solution given the conditions of the problems.
In this category you must build a physical prototype that meets certain requirements of construction and maneuver, with limited resources.
EBEC has 3 different phases. A local round, where you compete at your university, a national/regional round which gathers the winners of several Local Rounds, and the final round that will take place in Turin, Italy.
Do you think you have what it takes to complete this challenge? Then don’t wait any longer and apply!
We are waiting for you!
This year’s main sponsor of European BEST Engineering Competition (EBEC) Almada is Grupo Sousa. With that said, both Case Studies are related to issues that Grupo Sousa wants to tackle in the near future and is counting on you to do it!
Over the past 30 years Grupo Sousa became one of the main operators in the maritime sector in Portugal being the sole Portuguese shipowner in Alphaliner list of the world’s 100 largest shipowners. Grupo Sousa is also the sole Portuguese business group taking part in the multinational consortium operating Lisbon Cruise Terminal and, in the Energy sector, ensures the only LNG virtual pipeline in Macaronesia, the largest logistics operation of such kind in the Atlantic. Grupo Sousa business areas include Maritime Transportation, Port Operations, Logistics, Energy and Tourism.
