What is the CNSBC?

The national steel bridge competition us a uniwueevent where we expect outstanding performances from participants who come from different Canadian universities. Sky-is-the-limit sums up our standards in this competition. Indeed, every year we witness incredible bridges erections, presentations, structural and architectural designs.

The competition flourished because of the initiative of two individuals: Eric Lachance-Tremblay and Jean-Luc Martel, former ETS students, who worked with the CSCE and the CISC to develop a high level civil engineering competition. The aforementioned partners had a vision of a competition that will grow to a national level, just like the National Student Steel Bridge Competition of ASCE in the United States.
