The Board of European Students of Technology (BEST – not to be confused with Lassonde’s BEST Lab!) is inviting Canadian engineering student volunteers to apply to attend their complementary education courses all over Europe! 

These are short courses (usually 2 weeks in duration) that focus on a particular technical aspect “aimed at increasing and widening the professional knowledge in a certain field of technology, especially concerning modern technical applications of technology and the latest research achievements.” 

As a volunteer you’ll have the opportunity to meet Engineering students from all over Europe, to learn about a technical topic, to learn how complementary education courses are organised in BEST, to get to know a European city and, of course, to have fun. 

Below you will find a list with all the available courses for the upcoming  season, as well as further details on the application process, and expectations of your role as a CFES (Canadian Federation of Engineering Students) volunteer.
Please note these courses are in English. Your application letter and correspondence to the groups must be completed in English, and you must be comfortable using English for all written and oral communication. Likewise, of note, nearly everyone in BEST speaks English as a second language, so please do not think this opportunity is in any way limited to native English speakers; a this was a great way to improve their English skills without feeling uncomfortable/out of place. Any questions on this manner please contact

All Engineering Students from a CFES member school are welcome to apply. Deadline for applications is March 26th, 2017.

Everyone is encouraged to apply- this is an amazing opportunity to learn from experts about diverse technical topics and network with students from countries across Europe. (Plus accumulate a whole bunch of BESTies 🙂 )
If you have any questions whatsoever please do not hesitate to contact
