2021 Competition Update

After evaluating health and safety concerns regarding traveling and hosting large events that now extend well into 2021, we have decided that Student Steel Bridge Competition events will be completely virtual in 2021. AISC will not hold in-person Regional Events or in-person National Finals this year, therefore we will not be collecting sponsorships. Learn more on our COVID-19 Updates Page.
