UTEP Engineering Students Compete in National Steel Bridge Competition

Steel Bridge Competition

The University of Texas at El Paso College of Engineering steel bridge team will compete at the 2012 National Student Steel Bridge Competition May 24-27 at Clemson University in Clemson, S.C.

Student engineers from UTEP decisively earned their second straight first place finish at the regional AISC-ASCE Steel Bridge Competition in January.

Judges at the regional competition gave the UTEP bridge and its team top marks in four of six categories – economy, efficiency, speed and stiffness – as well as a second place in weight. The team competed against nine universities in the Texas-Mexico region and now has moved on to the national competition. This is the second year in a row that UTEP's team has competed at the national level.

The 26 team members, who include 14 students from last year's team, range from freshmen to a doctoral student.

The American Institute of Steel Construction and the American Society of Civil Engineers sponsor the event.
