Students from 15 colleges and universities across the Midwest descended upon Rolla on April 21-23 for the American Society of Civil Engineers’ annual student conference. As the conference host for the first time in more than a decade, S&T took advantage of a “home court advantage” to shine with a second-place finish for the Steel Bridge Team and a seventh-place finish for the Concrete Canoe Team. The Steel Bridge Team will advance to the national competition on May 27-28 at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. View photos of the steel bridge and concrete canoe competitions.
