What is Team Design?
EBEC Team Design is a competition that puts the ingenuity, dexterity and efficiency of teams of four participants to the test. In only four hours, they’ve got to design, build and test a prototype that satisfies a given problem that can range from launching an egg-proof rocket to building a moveable bridge.
In order to do this, they will have to use a limited amount of basic materials (wood, magnets, nails, duct tape…) and tools (glue gun, saw, drill…) in a resourceful way. Their final product will be evaluated by a panel of experts, who will judge its originality, performance and other characteristics.
All students of the Faculties of Engineering Technology, Bioscience Engineering, Science and Engineering Science can participate, whether they are freshmen or master students. The first three teams and the best team of exclusively first year students will be awarded and the winning team will get the chance to go to the Regional Round of EBEC.
EBEC Team Design will push each team to the limit when working with a limited amount of time and with limited resources. But first and foremost, it will be a wonderful experience based on fun and friendship.
EBEC Team Design 2018-2019 will take place on the 10th of November 2018 from 13h00 until 21h00 at the Arenberg Castle in cooperation with Belgian Railways. Register now and discover the creative engineer inside you!
