The Canadian National Steel Bridge Competition


Canadian universities conceive, build and assemble steel bridges respecting a realistic scenario. To distinguish themselves from other teams, a compromise must be made between the architectural aspect, technical and economic.


Offer the opportunity to engineering students to apply the theories and concepts learned in class through a challenging project. For many future engineers, this is a first experience that contributes to their formation.


The Canadian National Steel Bridge Competition 2nd edition was be hosted by Laval University in Quebec City from May 11 – 13, 2017. The next competition site is to be determined.

Canadian Society for Civil Engineering

The Canadian Society for Civil Engineering (CSCE) is a learned society created to develop and maintain high standards of civil engineering practice in Canada and to enhance the public image of the civil engineering profession. The CSCE is pleased to promote and get involved in the organization of the Canadian National Steel Bridge Competition (CNCCC). Until recently, the Local Organizing Committees of the CNCCC were not supervised and accumulated expertise was lost every year. To ensure successful hosting and sustainability of the competition, the Student Competition Committee of the CSCE was established. The latter is responsible for selecting and supervising the Local Organizing Committee in addition to being actively involved in the organization.



Canadian Institute of Steel Construction

The Canadian Institute of Steel Construction (CISC) is Canada’s voice for the steel construction industry, providing leadership in design and construction efficiency, quality and innovation. The CISC promotes the use and benefits of steel in construction, adds value to the construction and design community and supports the needs of the membership and industry through education and training, research and development, industry codes and standards, certification and advocacy. “The addition of this new competition in Canada brings the benefits of such a competition to more students than ever before across the country. We decided to support this competition as it is a natural fit with our mission and our commitment to education and training, and to supporting the engineers of the future.”
