For 25 years, BEST has provided BEST Courses to technology students from all over Europe. Approximately 10 000 people apply to our courses each year, but only around 2 000 get the chance to experience a BEST Course. This service offers students the opportunity to learn familiar or completely new topics from any technological field. At least one course is organised by every local group each year, which allows students to explore more than 90 different cities and universities.

This year at BEST Barcelona we have organised an Advanced course with HP company about Additive Manufacturing and Design Thinking. During the academic part of the course, a project was given to the students by the company, challenging the teams to design a solution. Everything took place in HP facilities, where the lectures were designed and imparted by two UPC professors with a lot of experience in company projects. Furthermore, the students had the opportunity to receive help and direct feedback from HP engineers on their projects.

Apart from the academic part, the course also had a wide variety of social activities to help students get to know each other in a short span of time and to be comfortable in an international environment. Thanks to these, the participants started the project very motivated and committed and had a whole lot of fun!
