BEST Gliwice

A student organization operating at the Silesian University of Technology

We can do it better!

What is BEST?

BEST, which stands for Board of European Students of Technology is a voluntary, non-profit, apolitical student association operating next to the biggest technical universities in Europe.

We are located in 30 countries at 85 different technical universities and we currently have around 3300 active members all across Europe. Our goal is to create a new model of an engineer – a creative, ambitious and communicative person with an extensive managerial knowledge, open for collaboration with people both from his/her country, as well as from abroad.

By our projects we attempt to help the student community to get accustomed to work in an international environment as well as assist them in functioning in culturally diverse communities.

Students, both by coordinating, as well as participating in events organized by BEST are given an opportunity to develop their abilities by working in teams and gaining new, valuable experiences.0
