Massive detached eclipsing binary systems constitute excellent test beds for upper main sequence stellar structure and evolution models. We will present results of the analysis of several detached eclipsing binaries observed by the BRITE-Constellation, including the most eccentric binary system with massive components - N Sco.

Mode of presentation need to be confirmed by the SOC
