The 2021 Student Steel Bridge Competition Regional Events have been moved to a virtual, Compete from Campus competition. 

AISC will not hold in-person Regional Events or in-person National Finals this year. In lieu of in-person events, AISC offers a Compete from Campus option of the traditional competition, provided it is safe to do so given any restrictions put in place by a team’s school.

Additionally, to accommodate teams that are unable to fabricate a bridge due to university or local restrictions, AISC is also offering an optional Supplemental Competition. This will be a design-only competition. All teams have the option to compete in either or both formats. Rules for both the SSBC: Compete from Campus and the Supplemental Competition can be found on the Rules and Clarifications page.

View our Team Resources page for information on being a participating team!
