Twenty-two teams of engineering students from schools across the country and Canada will come together to compete for “America’s Cup of Civil Engineering” at the American Society of Civil Engineers’ (ASCE) 28th Annual National Concrete Canoe Competition. Throughout the year, 215 teams of civil engineering students spent thousands of hours researching, designing and constructing their unique concrete canoes aimed at creating the winning combination of creativity, knowledge and teamwork to secure them a place in the national competition.
