Georgia Southern students in ASCE competition
Georgia Southern University students will go up against the likes of Auburn, the University of Alabama, Vanderbilt, and the University of Tennessee ” but not on the playing field. A group of dedicated students in the Civil Engineering Technology program will take on those schools at the American Society of Civil Engineers’ Regional Steel Bridge Design Competition, March 29-31, 2007.
Last year a team of civil engineering technology students from Georgia Southern took sixth place in competition. This year they’d like to do even better.
‘The Steel Bridge Design Competition gives students an opportunity to acquire hands-on experience in cooperative group work, deadlines, and budgets, and at the same time strengthens their understanding of basic civil engineering design principles,” said Marc Snyder, president of the ASCE student chapter at Georgia Southern.
‘Last year’s team showed a lot of spirit,” said Rusty Windsor, this year’s team captain. ‘This project is student-driven from beginning to end, and it requires innovation, testing, and team work.”
