Steel Bridge Competition 

2014 Steel Bridge Team 

Mission Statement 

The mission of the Student Steel Bridge Competition (SSBC) is to supplement the education of civil engineering students with a comprehensive, student-driven project experience from conception and design through fabrication, erection, and testing, culminating in a steel structure that meets client specifications and optimizes performance and economy. The SSBC increases awareness of real-world engineering issues such as spatial constraints, material properties, strength, serviceability, fabrication and erection processes, safety, aesthetics, project management, and cost. Success in inter-collegiate competition requires application of engineering principles and theory, and effective teamwork.
