Every progress and development of the Educational System is a step forward for us as a society. Keeping this in mind, BEST as an organisation through their events and services stands for development of students and the education in any possible field. One of the main events that enable every Local BEST Group to contribute towards that purpose are the Local Events on Education.
Surely you’ve seen science fairs in American style, but it’s a rarity for a fair in Macedonia to manage to capture the experience like those in the movies and TV shows. However, not all hope is lost, because the ambitious and hardworking students-members of BEST Skopje try to organise this European event known as EBEC,
Throughout the years BEST Skopje became a student organisation known by Its International Courses which take place in the three Seasons. Those very same courses even today connect thousands of students throughout Europe creating a student network by improving their academic knowledge, building friendships and trading information.
The Board of European Students of Technology (BEST) – Skopje organised the 13th Employement and Career Fair – Job Fair 2017, which took place in 03.04-12.04.2017. The official opening for the event took place on the 03.04.2017 in the amphitheatre of the Technological-Metallurgical Faculty. For the rest of the days the fair took place on the campus of the technical Faculties from 04.04-07.04, with IT Companies occupying 04-05 April, and technical companies occupying 06-07 April. It also took place on the Faculty of Architecture and Faculty of Civil Engineering in from 10.04 to 11.04 April.
European BEST Engineering Competition, EBEC Skopje 2017, was held from 15.02.2017 to 18.02.2017 and took place in the offices of our Annual Partners itLabs, who participated in both Case Study and Team Design categories, the company DoXteam that participated only in Case Study, and was also supported by SEAVUS. Another event that was organised as a part of this engineering competition was the Local Event on Education (LEoE) on which the topic “Traditional vs Modern methods of teaching – Path to a successful career” was discussed.
Last weekend the annual Local Assembly took place, where we elected the Board that will lead our organisation in the following year!
BEST Skopje in collaboration with the Faculty of Electronic Engineering and Information Technologies – Skopje, organised an international summer course for the 14th time! The focus of the lectures this year were “3G, 4G and 5G Technologies”. 25 participants from around Europe will listen to these lectures held by experienced professors from the Faculty of Electronic Engineering and Information Technologies, and experienced representatives and lecturers from companies such as T-Home Macedonia and Neotel. This course will take place from 3rd to 13th of July, at the end of which all participants will take an exam. If passed, they will be granted a certificate with credits from the ECTS system.
The Board of European Students of Technology (BEST) – Skopje is proud to announce the 12th Employment and Career Fair – Job Fair 2016. This event will last from 04.05 to 10.05.2016. More specifically the days with stands will be held in the halls of Faculty of Civil Engineering and Faculty of Architecture on 05.05 and 06.05, and on the campus of the technical faculties on 09.05 and 10.05.
1. What kind of an event is EBEC? Who can participate and what exactly happens on it?
Teodora: EBEC or European BEST Engineering Competition is the biggest engineering competition across Europe being held locally, regionally and on a European level. The event itself lasts 3 days, and on the first day theres an official opening and a forum discussion. The other two days are of a competitive nature in two different categories – Case Study and Team Design, on which teams compete against each other, all consisting of four students. In the Case Study category a theoretical problem of engineering nature is given on which the teams need to find a solution which satisfy certain criteria. On Team Design, the contestants are given materials from which they have to create a model that also needs to satisfy certain criteria. Every student from the technical faculties can attend this competition if they’re interested in friendship, team work and of course solving interesting engineering problems.
Mario: From what i had an opportunity to see EBEC is an event on which people who are friends even before the event have a chance to work and experience something new and interesting, and for those meet each other for the first time, to develop a friendship through work and something new and interesting. Anyone who has the will for work and the superpower of waking up early in the morning can participate in this competition.
