Steel Bridge


About the Team

Coming off of a 3rd place regional finish and a 24th placement at Nationals, the UIUC Steel Bridge team is looking to further their national recognition in the upcoming 2016-2017 season. This year’s brand new design is implementing a cantilever system to improve upon aggregate deflection and increase construction efficiency. This competition offers future civil and structural engineers the opportunity to develop their skills in steel design, fabrication, and teamwork. In the Student Instrumentation Shop, our team makes every member and connection of the bridge according to the design we make at the start of the year. With the help of sponsors, we look forward to claiming the top spot at regionals hosted by MSOE and to advance, once again, to the national competition at Oregon State.
