The 2018 ASCE Student Southeast Conference will be held at University of Florida (UF). It is designed to have students represent their university through Civil Engineering competitions while helping expand their network with fellow students, professors, and companies. It includes business meetings, professional/technical presentations, competitions, social activities and an awards banquet.

The two main competitions are steel bridge and concrete canoe. The top 4 teams from steel bridge and the top 2 from concrete canoe will go on to compete in Nationals with other top teams. UCF’s steel bridge team has competed at nationals for the last few years.

Other competitions take place at conference as well. These are solely regional competitions. Listed at the bottom are the upcoming competitions for the 2018 Conference.

2018 Competitions

Steel Bridge

Civil Engineering students are challenged to an intercollegiate competition that supplements their education 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 Student Steel Bridge Competition 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 competition requires application of engineering principles and theory, and effective teamwork. Future engineers are stimulated to innovate, practice professionalism, and use structural steel efficiently.

Concrete Canoe

The ASCE National Concrete Canoe Competition (NCCC) provides students with a practical application of the engineering principles they learn in the classroom, along with important team and project management skills they will need in their careers. The event challenges the students’ knowledge, creativity and stamina, while showcasing the versatility and durability of concrete as a building material.

Balsa Bridge

The Balsa Bridge Competition offers participating teams the opportunity to demonstrate knowledge of structural design principles in the construction of a three-dimensional balsa bridge structure. Students will design and build a bridge structure using specified balsa wood. The structure will be weighed and judged and then loaded until failure.

Surveying has been a cornerstone of civil engineering project planning and execution for centuries. One of the most important tasks for surveyors is finding the location of known points. Teams will be expected to locate a hidden point using given coordinates and typical surveying equipment.

Service Activity

Civil engineers have an ethical responsibility to promote the good of the public in their professional lives. Reflecting the spirit of our profession, the 2018 ASCE Southeast Student Conference will feature an optional community service activity with components to take place before and during the conference.
