LC Belgrade is a member of the Electrical Engineering STudents' European assoCiation, EESTEC, since 2000, and is currently with more than 300 members, the largest and the best organized local committee in Europe. During sixteen years of its existence, over 1000 students of Electrical Engineering, at University of Belgrade, participated in professional seminars and cultural exchanges in cities all over Europe. Since establishment, we organized more than 50 international and local events, aimed at domestic and international students, to provide them with an opportunity for personal and professional development, and encourage exploring different cultures. Everything we do we believe in outstanding individuals, therefore, motivating students for self- improvement and thinking differently is how we contribute to the university community in our country. We are proud to be part of this association, which provides young people with a kind of utopia and open them a new perspective in life, technology, engineering, communications, travel, new cultures, new experiences, new friends and meaning of successful projects.
How do we do it? It is through organising free local projects for students at our University, like "Soft Skills Academy", which was held for the seventh time, in 2016, which is later taken as EESTEC International project; we provide young people the opportunity to get a job in our country through organizing the biggest student voluntarily project "JobFair - Kreiraj svoju buducnost", which has lasted for twelve years; as third local project, with tradition in our committee, we have "Brand new engineers - Od integrala do inženjera", which gives our students insights in current engineering subjects in a scientiﬁc way, with help from professors of our faculty. Also 2015. we started organizing 24h hackaton during BNE seminar. In 2016. we have participated in regional project PLC+ SIM(P)ATIC Challenge 2016 with LC Zagreb and LC Ljubljana. When it comes to the EESTEC International workshops we have organized the biggest event in EESTEC - 30th EESTEC Congress in 2016, and in the same year 1st Autumn Congress.
We all know that international workshops and cultural exchanges are the core of our eestec spirit, and we are always happy and willing to provide you the best experience ever in Belgrade. What we get through volunteering in our local committee is soft skills, discovering ourselves and others through the work in local and international projects, and the greatest gift of all, inevitable happiness when you know you have a great number of outstanding individuals as friends, and whichever eestec place you go, you will be welcomed with a smile and genuine hospitality.
