About BEST


BEST, Board of European Students of Technology is a constantly growing non-profit and non-political organisation. Since 1989 we provide communication, co-operation and exchange possibilities for students all over Europe. We are active in 32 countries, with 94 local groups and more than 3300 members.

BEST Timisoara

BEST Timișoara has been established in 1991 thanks to a group of students filled with enthusiasm from the Politehnica University of Timisoara. Over the 25 years of activity, our organisation succeeded in helping students by organising: 21 career events, 16 engineering competitions, 10 cultural exchanges, 30 academic courses.

BEST Courses

One of the services BEST offer students are seasonal courses, which take part in every season of the year. They are organised by Local BEST Groups of 33 countries from all over Europe and they last for 7 to 14 days. Participants have the oportunity to combine academic courses with non-formal education techniques. At the same time, courses are an opportunity for the participants to become more internationally minded and develop themselves.

BEST Timisoara - Summer Course 2017

Have you ever thought… How we shaped the entire world from nothing? How we created the first wheel from rocks? How the Romanians built the first Dacia that could be repaired using only chewing gum? Coming to the land of all possibilities, on the shore of the Bega canal is the wonderful city called Timisoara. Here you can find the tales of 3D Design using Pro Engineer, from which you can start the journey to building your first Lamborghini. During this course you will get acquainted to the one of the most popular CAD programs, learn how to model basic 3D shapes and at the end bring all your previously created pieces together in an assembly. Bring your passion and curiosity and get ready to shape the cars and robots of the future. Be at the cutting edge of technology! Impress your friends with never before seen prototypes! Let's make wonderful memories that will last you a lifetime! And remember, whenever someone says that he or she is a very good 3D designer, just tell them this: WE CAN CAD IT BETTER!
