UB student engineers compete to build the best bridge.

To build the best bridge

Each year, UB students take part in a bridge-building competition hosted by the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE). The students, members of ASCE’s student club at UB, competed virtually this year due to COVID-19. They are judged in six different categories: construction speed, lightness, aesthetics, stiffness, economy and efficiency.
