BEST (Board of European Students of Technology) is a non-profit, non-political, non-representative students’ organisation aiming to provide communication, cooperation and exchange possibilities for students of technology since 1989.

BEST UPC (Polytechnic University of Catalonia) is one of the 13 founding groups of BEST. Nowadays the organization is present in 95 technical universities in 33 countries, making a dynamic and well-organised network of students which activities support the personal development of students and facilitate interactions between students, universities and companies.

The mission of BEST is developing students. BEST helps students to achieve an international mindset, to reach a better understanding of cultures and societies and to develop the capacity to work in culturally diverse environments. Aiming this, BEST UPC organizes events, courses and technological competitions.

Besides the WEC, BEST UPC organizes every year an educational course, with the intention that students from other universities where BEST is present apply and be accepted for these courses.

Local BEST group members coordinate all the activities, get the necessary resources to realise them and, of course, enjoy as much as possible while developing teamwork.

Moreover, BEST UPC gives the opportunity to all the students of this university to apply for any BEST course all around Europe, although they are not active members of the association.
