Regional Events

Beginning with the 2019 competition year, AISC will work with host schools to organize 18 Student Steel Bridge Competition - Regional Events.  For planning, convenience and team budgetary reasons, the 2019 Regional Events will largely follow the ASCE Student Conference dates and locations.  However, this was not possible in all cases, so we are currently sourcing other host schools for some regions. Please take special note below.  Also note, AISC's Student Steel Bridge Competition is no longer affiliated with ASCE, and all Regional Events must be distinct, separate competitions, as ASCE requested.

Please see below for Regional Event locations, dates, contacts and websites (as available).  This information will be updated throughout the year, so please check back for updates!
