UCF’s Civil Engineering Students Attend the Nationals
April 3, 2010
The UCF students took 1st place at the American Society of Civil Engineers 2010 Southeastern Student Conference in the steel bridge construction competition.
“For the steel bridge competition, students are responsible for the design and fabrication of a bridge that they practice building before the competition. Judges consider the appearance, construction and weight load of the steel bridge.”
UCF ASCE student, Alex Hinkle said “The bridge is in pieces when we get to the conference, kind of like Legos. “Even though it is huge compared to Legos.”
Taking first place in the construction of the bridge allowed these Orlando UCF students to enter the most prestigious student bridge construction contest- the 2010 National Student Steel Bridge Competition, held May 28 and 29 at Purdue University.
Walker Miller Equipment Company is very proud that great Civil Construction Engineers are receiving their training right here in Orlando! Congrats students!
