We appreciate the contributions that civil engineers make to the steel industry. There would be little demand for our products such as steel bars and cold drawn steel wire without advances in civil engineering. That is why we look to the young and bright student engineers for inspiration. We noticed that many university engineering students partake in Steel Bridge Competitions, and we wanted to recognize and complement their efforts.
Since 1992, the Student Steel Bridge Competition has tested the knowledge and application of teams of university students from chapters of the American Society of Civil Engineers. These structural engineering students design, fabricate and construct a steel bridge, which is then rigorously tested against set specifications.
Here are some links to some university steel bridge clubs and teams that we found:
The next national competition will be hosted at Clemson University this coming May. We wish all teams the best of luck, and we look forward to seeing the results!
If you know of a university steel bridge club's website that we missed, let us know and we will add them!
Steel Bridge Club Search Engine
We’ve also made a custom search engine for Steel Bridge clubs and university ASCE chapters. Enter a query, like “concrete canoe” and get results only from university steel bridge and ASCE groups.
