The Steel Bridge Competition
2017 Mid-Atlantic Regional Conference
May 26 & 27
Hosted by: Oregon State University, Corvallis, Oregon
It’s that time of year! Students from Drexel University’s Steel Bridge team will be competing at this year’s Mid-Atlantic Regional Conference against several other steel bridge teams. This year’s design envelope called for the construction of either a simple span or cantilever bridge. This year, the bridge must have a span of 20'. Last year, the steel bridge team competed with a simple girder design. It is the team’s goal to place within the top three teams at this year’s regionals and advance to the National competition, which will be hosted by Oregon State University.
Team Members: TBD for 2017 year
Faculty Advisors: TBD for 2017 year

The Student Steel Bridge Competition is sponsored by the American Institute of Steel Construction and in co-operation with the American Society of Civil Engineers. The challenge requires civil engineering students to design, fabricate and construct a steel bridge.
The past few years for Drexel's bridge team have been very exciting. In 2009, our team placed 2nd at the regional competition, and traveled to Las Vegas to participate in the national competition. Check out our video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GsLvxsgi1Ys
In 2010, we placed 1st in the regional competition and traveled to Purdue for nationals, where we placed 10th in the nation. Our team and resources are growing each year!
