Steel Bridge

The mission of the Student Steel Bridge Competition (SSBC) is to supplement
the education of civil engineering students with a comprehensive, student-driven
project experience from conception and design through fabrication, erection, and
testing, culminating in a steel structure that meets client specifications and
optimizes performance and economy. The SSBC increases awareness of
real-world engineering issues such as spatial constraints, material properties,
strength, serviceability, fabrication and erection processes, safety, aesthetics,
project management, and cost. Success in inter-collegiate competition requires
application of engineering principles and theory, and effective teamwork. Future
engineers are stimulated to innovate, practice professionalism, and use structural
steel efficiently.
