22nd Annual Concrete Canoe Competition
June 12, 2009

After months of hard work, calculations, and practice, practice, practice, hundreds of civil engineering students are now paddling to Tuscaloosa, Alabama for the American Society of Civil Engineers’ (ASCE) 22nd Annual National Concrete Canoe Competition. The event, now entering its third decade, is being hosted by the University of Alabama. After coming out on top in regional competitions throughout the spring, the best and brightest from 22 top engineering schools will match wits and skills as they find out if they have what it takes to win the “America’s Cup of Civil Engineering”.

More than 250 teams work throughout the year to qualify for the national competition, and in the process gain hands-on experience working with concrete mix designs, as well as important project management skills. These students represent the future of civil engineering.

For more information on the National Concrete Canoe Competition, including downloadable high-resolution photos, please visit www.concretecanoe.asce.org.
