Local BEST group Saint Petersburg is one of four local groups in Russia and the only one in St. Petersburg. The group was founded on July 18, 2008 in Peter the Great St.Petersburg Polytechnic University. During this time, more than 400 students of our University took part in the work of the organization.
Over 8 years history, there have been over 40 different events. We started with short-term events dedicated to one company. Such interactions between students and large corporations to this day opened by the efforts of members of the group. Our works have satisfied such corporations as SIEMENS, Bosch, MARS, Dell, EMC, etc., and many students of SPBPU gained important knowledge from the lips of highly skilled professionals.
First BEST educational course for our group was held in spring 2010. Its interesting theme: “Theory of inventive problem solving and its applications” attracted many enterprising students from all over Europe and left only positive emotions after completion of the course.
First Engineering competition was organized in 2009. This event is very loved by the students of our University and became an annual event. Since 2012, the Engineering competition held in conjunction with the celebration of the birth of the University and called “Rector's Cup”
Nowadays the local group BEST Saint Petersburg is a stable student organisation, consisting of students with an active lifestyle, who are eager to develop themselves and other people through different events and work on them.
