Next stop: nationals! BYU ASCE wins Steel Bridge Competition

The BYU chapter of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) has once again proved its skills at the Rocky Mountain Conference (RMC). In addition to winning the Steel Bridge Competition for the second year in a row, BYU ASCE placed highly in many of the other events.

RMC was held earlier this month at Utah State University. Each year, students compete in challenges such as the Concrete Canoe, ‘Canstruction’ and many others.

This year, BYU ASCE won the following awards:

  • Third place overall
  • First place technical paper and presentation
  • First place Steel Bridge Competition
  • Second place ‘Canstruction’
  • Second place predesign paper and presentation

Winning first place in the Steel Bridge Competition has qualified BYU to go on to the National Student Steel Bridge Competition. Last year, the BYU team also went to the national competition and placed 16th out of 50 schools.

RMC is organized annually by the American Society of Civil Engineers. All of the awards won by BYU are on display outside the Civil Engineering department office on the third floor of the Clyde Building.
