The CISC is a proud sponsor of the ASCE/AISC Student Steel Bridge Competition. This competition requires civil engineering students to design, fabricate and construct a steel bridge and encourages students to apply their theoretical knowledge in a hands-on project that addresses the full breadth of steel design requirements, including: aesthetics, construction speed, lightness, stiffness, economy and efficiency. Competitions are held at the Regional and National levels.
Regional competitions are held during the ASCE Student Regional Conferences. Eligible Colleges/Universities must have an established ASCE Student Chapter or ASCE International Student Group.
Invitations to compete at the National Student Steel Bridge Competition (NSSBC) are extended to top performing teams from each regional conference. The CISC contributes $2000 to each Canadian team that qualifies for the National Competition.
CISC encourages each team to contact the CISC regional manager in their area to arrange for fabricators to donate material and teach the students to weld.
The 2018 NSSBC will be hosted by University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Champaign, Illinois, from May 25-26, 2018. For more details about the National Student Steel Bridge Competition including eligibility, competition rules and registration, please visit the AISC website.
