Case Study

What is Case Study?

In this competition, teams of four students gather to provide a solution to a technical or management problem provided by our two case study partners. Mostly this is a genuine realistic problem which needs to be tackled by consultants or corporate clients.

The various teams will be given a limited amount of time to solve and pitch their approach to our EBEC jury. The jury will consist of experts in the subject field, from both academia and industry. The teams will be judged on creativity, teamwork and approach to the issue.
