Students from the engineering program have several opportunities for real-world experience where they can apply classroom lessons. One such project is the steel bridge team, a group that participates in an annual intercollegiate competition to plan, design, build, and test a 1:10 scale steel bridge. They took us behind the scenes with a timelapse video and several photos to share the experience.
The team took home the following honors from its regional conference in 2016:
- Second place — Lightness
- Third place — Display
- Third place — Efficiency
- Third place — Stiffness
