ASCE Bridge Competition

On April 1, the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) UOB Student Chapter organized a competition focused on the designing of a bridge made from Balsa wood and structured along a set of given specifications.

The results of the competition will be out soon, so stay tuned.

Nine teams participated in the competition under the supervision of Dr. Tony Gergess, Dr. Najib Gergess, Dr. Nabil Fares, Dr. Hikmat Zerbe and Dr Nisrine Makhoul.

Students used professional tools for the design and implementation of the bridges under the supervision of instructors. The winning bridge was to be determined based on its ability to withstand the most load.

The ASCE also took part in a gathering bringing together student chapters from the American University of Beirut, the Lebanese American University, Université St. Joseph, the Rafic Hariri University, and Notre Dame University.

The gathering took place at the Batroun Village Club where students had the chance to come to know each other and to compete in various activities related to the civil engineering field, and to come together for a group photo! ​​​​​​
