Every year this chapter of ASCE attends and competes at the Rocky Mountain Regional Conference. At these events students not only compete, but also meet employers and engineering students from other schools. Students spend countless hours on events such as:

  • Concrete Canoe
  • Steel Bridge
  • Pre Design
  • Mystery Design
  • Technical Papers

It is the time when all the semester's hard work comes to a closure and students compete with their projects.

Conference Event Descriptions

  • Concrete Canoe: Since the early 1970s, ASCE student chapters have been constructing and racing concrete canoes. During that time, canoe mixes and designs have varied, but the long-established tradition of teamwork, camaraderie, and spirited competition has been constant. Teams, their associates, judges, and all other participants are expected to maintain and build upon this tradition.
  • Steel Bridge: The National Student Steel Bridge Competition (NSSBC) challenges student teams to design and fabricate a one-tenth scale steel bridge. NSSBC is co-sponsored by ASCE and the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC).
  • Pre-Design: coming soon
  • Mystery Design: coming soon
  • Technical Papers: coming soon
