About 200 university teams participate in a total of 18 regional competitions (the first regional competition took place in January), and the top teams will qualify to compete in the finals at Clemson University, May 25-26. Now in its 21st year, the competition convenes engineering students from across North America to build their designed and fabricated steel bridges under the pressure of the clock.


There are plenty of opportunities to attend one of these exciting events! View the full schedule of upcoming regional competitions (including host school contact info) on ASCE’s website at You can find out more about the national competition on Clemson University’s website at
