BEST (Board of European Students of Technology) provides a chance to the students throughout Europe to travel to foreign countries, to cooperate and learn from each other, to implement the most incredible ideas and to be sure that their voice is heard and significant. It is a non-political, non-profit organisation uniting the students from European technical universities since 1989. BEST Kaunas is the only division of BEST in Lithuania; it is one of 98 local groups in Europe. Members of BEST Kaunas are just like YOU, KTU students who have traveled in almost all of Europe, contributed to many events organised by KTU and have done a million of other works to make tomorrow more beautiful. Motto of BEST members: “Think outside the box!” and “If you can dream it – you can do it!”.
We organize events: for students from KTU and from other universities, for youth from Kaunas, and even international events, gathering students from all Europe.
● EBEC (European BEST Engineering Competition) is our most well-known event, organized for KTU students. Here you have the possibility to test your practical skills and theoretical knowledge by solving tasks provided by the biggest Lithuanian companies. In Kaunas we organize the 1st stage of the international EBEC competition and the winners go to the next stages where they compete with the best engineering students from all of Europe.
● JuniorBEC is an engineering competition for school students from all of Lithuania. Students gather in Kaunas for one day to solve tasks provided by the companies, as well as learn more about KTU and engineering overall.
● Courses – an event that gathers 20-30 students from all of Europe, who all have a common goal – gaining knowledge and skills in a friendly environment. Courses last 1-2 weeks during which companies provide classes on various topics, while we show students our country and culture.
● City Rally is an orientational game, organized every September. During the event we show around Kaunas for new students, while at the same time having lots of fun!
