Every year BEST Coimbra organizes an Academic Course about
Technology, open to all European students of universities
belonging to the BEST network. These courses are one of the best chances
that you will ever get to combine travelling with your education.
They're aimed to provide knowledge and/or develop skills of
participants. You’ll share ideas with students coming from
different countries and learn everything about Portuguese culture
and Coimbra. BEST Courses are taught in English and are delivered
by professionals, who have either obtained an academic
certification and have, at least, a university level degree on the
course's subject, or been employed in the same field.
Learn with lecturers from the University of Coimbra.
Explore with us the beautiful city of Coimbra
You will make friends from all around Europe and maybe get to visit them later!
This year the topic of the Course will concern additive
manufacturing (AM), commonly known as 3D printing - the technology that has allowed us to transform digital
designs into tangible objects and turn them into reality. But our course is much more than
that: You’ll learn more about the corporate world, have company
visits and of course… Get to know Portugal, do some fun activities
and go on an amazing weekend trip!
