Throughout the year BEST organises different activities where students from the TU Delft get the opportunity to increase their international experience, establish contacts, improve their English and have fun. All our attendees have something in common: they want to live a unique experience, different from day-to-day university life!
BEST events are organised throughout the whole year. One one hand, there are the BEST Courses, which take place in each of the 4 seasons all around Europe. On the other hand, there are local events that can be either educational, like trainings or workshops, or social, like parties or dinners togther.
Moreover, there are events that happen once per year, like competitions or Symposia on Education. This includes the BEST Connection Tree Competition (BCTC) or the European BEST Engineering Competition (EBEC), which is organised in local, regional and final rounds. The symposia are either local BEST Events on Education, like A-STEP 2030, or 1-week sessions that focus on the entire continent.
You can find more information about these events below:
- Follow interesting lectures covering many different technology fields, economics, marketing and management
- Visit companies, industrial plants and research centres
- Take part in case studies
- Receive ECTS credits in recognised courses
BEST Engineering Competitions are events where teams of students compete using their technical, soft, social and communicative skills. In Delft students can participate to: BCTC or EBEC.
The BEST Connection Tree Competition is designed for Civil Engineering and Architecture students, where they have to design a steel structure that will be placed in TU Delft’s campus!
EBEC is organised all around Europe in 2 different categories: Team Design and Case Study. If you win our local round, you advance to the regional round in Benelux. It’s a chance to compete with the best minds of Europe!
Challenge your engineering skills through:
BEST Delft organises each year the BEST Education Forum, which is a one-day activity, where students, professors and responsibles for the improvement of education at TU Delft get together and analyze the current situation. It is an opportunity to make your voice heard in the university and to actively bring the change to you and your fellow students!
On the international side, BEST Symposia on Education are seminars that last for about 6 days. They gather engineering students and professors from all over the continent with the purpose of evaluating and finding new paths for higher engineering education in Europe.
BEST Delft proposes a series of social events to its members, like brunches or dinners together, board game evenings, or for example, a Christmas festivity. Besides, we organise parties and cultural exchanges with other groups from all over Europe. So, don’t hesitate and join us!
Also, our international network of BEST groups offers non-academic activities such as sailing weeks, ski-weeks or jams. These events have a higher fee and have no academic part. Only fun, fun and fun! To see what these actually look like, check the Alpine Jam organised by Torino.
