What is BEST

BEST is a voluntary international association, apolitical, non-profit and non-representative of the students of technical universities in Europe. Since 1989 we provide communication, co-operation and exchange possibilities for students all over Europe.  The aim of BEST is to enable European technology students to reach a more international mindset, to better understand European cultures and to increase their capacity to work in international platforms. For this purpose, BEST creates opportunities for students from different countries to meet and work together through activities such as academic events, education symposiums and engineering competitions. It also provides career support to students through activities such as international career support and career days.
