What is a BEST course for students?
In this event, participants attend lectures given by the university’s teaching staff or by experts from companies. At the end of the course students take an exam, which is designed to evaluate the participants’ success.
A BEST Course is an optimised event and should fulfill these general criteria: provide new knowledge or skills for participants, being taught by professional people. Subtypes are BEST Courses on Technology, BEST Courses on Career Related Skills and BEST Courses on Applied Engineering.
A BEST Course on Technology aims at increasing and widening the professional knowledge of the participant in a certain field of technology about modern technical applications of technology and the latest research achievements.
BEST Course on Career Related Skills contains non-technological subjects that develop personal skills in topics linked with working methods, communication techniques, marketing, economics, project and organisation management and other such soft skills, stressing practical work.
In a BEST Course on Applied Engineering, participants put theoretical knowledge into practice. They work in different teams and solve specific time-bounded tasks, with limited resources and present their solutions at the end.
