Winning teams are awarded prizes for top finishing bridges, as well as the most innovative and most aesthetic bridges.

Students are given the opportunity to utilize engineering concepts, meet with professional engineers, and be awarded cash prizes for their efforts. For more information, or to register for this event, please go to or contact Mike Howell at
