Canadian National Steel Bridge Competition

École Polytechnique de Montréal
May 15 – 18th, 2019




For the last four years, 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.


The Competition allows students to deepen their knowledge with a practical project. This human experience develops their interpersonal and professional skills. It encourages innovation and creates relationships between students and the industry.


The Canadian National Steel Bridge Competition 4th edition will be hosted by École Polytechnique de Montréal in Montreal, Quebec from May 15 – 18th, 2019.

The competition flourished because of the initiative of two individuals: Éric Lachance-Tremblay and Jean-Luc Martel, former ETS students, who worked with the CSCE and the CISC to develop a high level civil engineering competition. The aforementioned partners had a vision of a competition that will grow to a national level, just like the Student Steel Bridge Competition of ASCE in the United States (where some Canadian universities were already competing). Their involvement, dedication and passion have given birth to this incredible competition.
