Local BEST Groups
Students Reached


Engineering competitions are the events we organise where student groups use their technical, social and communication skills to perform a specific task. In these competitions, under certain conditions (time, situation, materials, etc.), students compete to provide the most appropriate solution in terms of performance, cost and innovation. There are two different categories for EBEC:


The goal is to project and construct a prototype, with limited materials that follow the requirements of the presented problems. The participants should plan on an efficient strategy that leads to the resolution of the problem and then present it after 6 to 7 hours of working. The participant profile should include following things:
– Be practical
– Be creative
– Be economic
– Be applicable


The teams have the opportunity to analyse and solve a problem based on a real situation. To do that the participants have access to the research tools such as internet and they must present their solution after 6 to 7 hours of working. The participant profile should include following things:
– Critical Thinking
– Solution Techniques
– Creativity
– Be logistically compatible


  • You have to participate with 3 friends as a group ( Totally 4 people)
  • All of group members should be from Yildiz Technical University students.
  • Add your CV to your application form.
