Photo story: Civil engineering students test their mettle at regional competition

A group of Ohio University civil engineering students went head-to-head against students from around the region in a range of competitions at the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Ohio Valley Student Conference in Columbus on April 7-9.

After months of designing, testing and prepping, teams vied for wins in the concrete canoe, concrete bat and steel bridge competitions. Although the final results didn’t see OHIO at the top of the ranks, the students brought back skills from beyond the classroom and learned lessons more valuable than trophies.

Check out our photos below for a peek inside their experience – from the late nights in the shop to the excitement of the live competition.
