Gators win first place in hands-on engineering competition

In Engineering Education, News

Our student chapter of the American Society of Civil Engineers won first place at the 2014 ASCE Southeast Regional Conference. Gator teams took home the trophy for first place overall, in addition to earning first place in both the Steel Bridge and Concrete Canoe competitions.

The competitions at the ASCE Conference are designed to give civil engineering students an opportunity to utilize their classroom education by building real-world structures. Specifically, the Steel Bridge Competition entails conception and design through fabrication and testing a steel structure, while the Concrete Canoe Competition challenges students’ knowledge and creativity while using concrete as a building material.

Wish our Gator Engineers good luck as they move on to compete at the national level!
