EBEC Local Round 2022



The next EBEC Local Round is coming this year in March 2022!



The Case Study (CS) is a theoretical challenge in which students are given a technical, legal, practical or social problem that needs to be solved within a
limited time and with limited resources.
For this purpose, the students need to abstract and analyze the problem and present their solution.


Innovative Design (ID) focuses on the skills of the students with which they can create a prototype supported by a plan of how it can look in a real life environment. It just needs to illustrative enough for the future implementation and isn’t expected to be fully functional.

The challenges will be done in teams of 4.

You can either register a whole team or apply just by yourself and be matched with other people.
Check our Survival Guide for all the information!

Please note that the 2G rule applies, so a valid proof of vaccination or recovery has to be provided!
