ESTIEM organised dozens, if not hundreds of event for its members yearly. Here is some of our favorite event types!


Academic Days

As the name of the event well describes, this event is based on academic interaction. In the event participants will work on a specific topic which is defined by organising Local Group. A student has a good possibility to increase his knowledge in industrial engineering through practice and theory.

Activity Weeks

Activity week gives you a chance to have fun and a possibility to get to know some element of the local culture – with guarantee. Locals organise a lot of activities that ensures the atmosphere among the participants will be high. Examples are Skiing Activity Week in the Alps, Oktoberfest in Munich and a carnival in Eindhoven in the Netherlands.


Europe3D combines having fun and academic life in a unique way. Three dimensions of this event stand for economy, politics and culture which all will be introduced to the participants from the point of view of the organising country. Three dimensions offers to participants a possibility to understand some country well because the locals introduces to participants really interesting parts of their country. Past Europe3D has involved for example lectures held by politicians, workshops, company visits, sightseeing and parties.

Brain Trainer

Brain trainer will give you a chance to improve yourself in three aspects which are all relevant for an industrial engineering student: leadership, presentation skills and business. The educators of Brain Trainer are professional of their own field.  Brain Trainer is one of the ESTIEM- events that you should add on your CV!

Summer Academy

Summer academy concentrate on increasing the knowledge in leadership and communication skills of participants. Students gather together to argue with each other and will be mentored by a professional. Like Brain Trainer, Summer Academy is an event worth of mentioning on your CV. This event takes around two weeks but during the week you will understand why.


TIMES (Tournament in Management and Engineering Skills) is a business case competition and has been one of the most popular ESTIEM-events among LG Helsinki students in past years. Participating teams will rationalize their own solution to the case based on the data and reports they get about the case. One team has 3-4 members and they will go through a local qualification first. Qualified teams will travel somewhere in Europe to the semi finals. Logically, best ones of the semi finals will continue to finals. Success in the finals is a huge merit in the labour market in Finland and overall in Europe.


Vision is an annual project which has a theme that is handled in different seminars participants will take part of. Vision’s topics are always actual and may be related to food production, customer relations or to other topics related to economy. Seminars encourage to innovative thinking and offer tools solving problems and understanding new trends. Paricipants get connections with companies because Vision is often organised with a company which suits the annual theme.


Businessbooster is an ESTIEM project which improves and stimulates entrepreneurship among students. This goal will be achieved by different trainings, network opportunities and competitions. Businessbooster helps potential ESTIEM-entrepreneurs to start their career in entrepreneurship.


Central ESTIEM-events


Council Meeting

Council Meeting is twice a year organised event which gathers around 200 international students together. It’s the biggest event of ESTIEM which consists of General Assembly and smaller group works that aims to develop ESTIEM’s functions and organisation in general. In addition to that, during the event new members and project coordinators of ESTIEM board are voted. After days working for ESTIEM will first-rate evening program start.

Coordination Meetings

Coordination Meetings are about coordinating the Board, committees, projects or regional co-operation. It is like a little brother for the Council Meeting. During the Coordination Meeting participants talk about local questions, such as cooperation with companies. It is a wonderful opportunity to get to know local ESTIEM- action and to members of neighbouring Local Groups!
