Steel Bridge

The ASCE Steel Bridge is an annual competition between American Society of Civil Engineer (ASCE) chapters nation wide. The team designs and fabricates the most structurally and functionally efficient bridge. The competition has been around for over 20 years and has become one of the largest events at the annual ASCE conference. Each year the rules are modified to keep the competition fresh and competitive. The bridges are designed to be erected at the competition. After the bridge is built, it will be weighed and load-tested with 2500 pounds. Deflections and the depth of the bridge section are measured. These measurements will then be entered into formulas to determine the overall winner.

 

Membership Benefits

Get Involved @ FAU
The ASCE FAU Student Chapter is the largest engineering organization on campus. We strive to properly prepare our members for their future careers and provide opportunities for students to learn how to communicate effectively, lead, and work as a team in a professional engineering environment.

.

Attend Regional Conference
Students have an opportunity to participate in competitions with other student teams in the region. The event includes a business meeting, professional/technical presentations, a variety of competitions, (concrete canoe, steel bridge, surveying, technical paper presentations, etc.), social activities and an awards banquet.
Seminars, Workshops, & Social Events
Seminars and workshops provide a rewarding experience in networking, learning new things about civil engineering, and new skill sets that you don’t learn in the classroom. Socials allow you can get to know your classmates outside of the classroom, make friends, and enjoy ASCE activities with one another.
Apply Class Skills
Provides students the opportunity to apply and learn important civil engineering concepts through reinforcement of concepts from classes & design projects. Giving a hands-on learning approach of engineering practices and use of materials.
Networking
Get to know and work beside classmates, professors, & professional engineers. Gain practical knowledge from professionals in the engineering community. ASCE serves as a job hotline linking the students with industry.
Volunteer & Community Service
Give back to the community where we help those in need and provide our members with the opportunity to make a difference through various community, environmental, & volunteering projects and events.
