This year marks the fourth annual Canadian National Steel Bridge Competition (CNSBC), a competition that is jointly organized by the Canadian Institute of Steel Construction (CISC) and the Canadian Society for Civil Engineering (CSCE). The competition provides participants an opportunity to form real-world engineering solutions through the design and fabrication a steel bridge structure that meets specific design requirements. The CNSBC 2019 takes place in May 2019 at the Ecole Polytechnique de Montreal in Montreal, Quebec. The competition will include on-site erection of the structure, a poster presentation, an oral presentation and a final evaluation based on design, optimization and economy.
