General description

Where reality ends science-fiction begins... or so we thought.

Once upon a time, there was a man who got his head hit by a falling apple, elsewhere lived a pair of brothers who craved to fly, a woman who wanted to play monopoly, or this guy who wanted to take the first selfie. It all started with a dream. A dream of a better tomorrow.

Smartphones, wireless networks, artificial intelligence, only a few years ago all of these things seemed impossible. They are no longer just a fantasy and now we face yet new technological challenges to conquer. These are the Key Enabling Technologies - The Microelectronics, Nanoelectronics, Industrial Bioengineering, Photonics and Advanced Materials.

That is why BEST brings you experts from Technical University-Sofia with long term experience to help you master the basics of key technologies that shape our lives. You will learn how these technologies make progress and gain first-hand experience through experiments and tons of practical tasks.

Don’t worry, the airplane tickets are cheap. Come to Sofia this Autumn and meet the mad scientist who dwells inside you.
