BEST courses of technology
BEST, Board of European Students of Technology, is a non-profit student organisation. It is run by students, working for students. BEST organises different activities where students from member universities get the opportunity to increase their international experience, establish contacts, improve their English and have fun.
Local BEST groups arrange short (1-2 weeks long) courses throughout the year, where engineering students get the chance to learn more about a specific topic in their field of interest. BEST also organises seminars on educational issues, engineering competitions and leisure events.
In a learning event, participants attend lectures given by the university’s teaching staff or by experts from companies. They visit companies, industrial plants or research centres and sometimes take part in case studies.

The organising local BEST group takes care of accommodation and subsistence during the entire event, transportation to lectures and all activities related to the contents of the event, teaching and material costs and social activities.
Depending on the situation of the local BEST group, there might be a participation fee.
The maximum fee is 5 Euro per day (but no more than 55 EUR in total).
