2018 National Student Steel Bridge Competition Announced
April 26, 2018

The 2018 National Student Steel Bridge Competition (NSSBC), sponsored by the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) and by the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC), will be hosted by The ASCE Student Chapter of The University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign in Champaign, Illinois, on May 25-26, 2018.

The mission of the ASCE/AISC Student Steel Bridge Competition (SSBC) is to supplement the education of civil engineering students with a comprehensive, student-driven project experience from conception and design through fabrication, erection, and testing, culminating in a steel structure that meets client specifications and optimizes performance and economy. The SSBC increases awareness of real-world engineering issues such as spatial constraints, material properties, strength, serviceability, fabrication and erection processes, safety, esthetics, and cost. Success in inter-collegiate competition requires effective teamwork and project management. Future engineers are stimulated to innovate, practice professionalism, and use structural steel efficiently.
