CEIE Students Compete in Regional ASCE Competitions

More than 30 CEIE students attended the American Society of Civil Engineers Virginias Conference hosted by the University of Virginia April 3-6, 2014.   Students from civil engineering programs in Virginia, West Virginia, and the District of Columbia competed in a variety of civil engineering competitions and challenges including the year-long steel bridge design-build competition and the design-build-race concrete canoe competition.  This year’s GMU canoe won a number of heats against other regional universities, finishing in first place in the Men’s Slalom/endurance race, first place in the Co-ed Sprint, second place in the Men’s Sprint and third place in the Women’s Sprint.  Congratulations GMU civil engineers!
