Many Student Steel Bridge Competition (SSBC) alumni have told us that this event was the highlight of their college careers, leading to professional opportunities, lasting friendships, and an incredible sense of accomplishment.

This is your chance to be part of it! 

Volunteers are needed in your community to support our student engineers as they design steel bridges, assemble them in a timed environment, and put their handiwork to the test. Opportunities may include judging, event setup, or general tasks (such as helping with the registration desk, lunch distribution, and others).

Regional Competitions will take place around the country throughout March and April. Our finalists will meet for the National Finals at Virginia Tech on May 27-28, 2022. 

When you are ready, please complete this Volunteer Interest Form. AISC will share your contact information with the respective host school who will confirm any volunteer positions and provide more information about the event.
