SMDI is Proud to Co-Sponsor the 2012 ASCE/AISC Student Steel Bridge Competition

Washington, DC, March 30, 2012 - The Steel Market Development Institute (SMDI) is pleased to be a co-sponsor of the 2012 ASCE/AISC Student Steel Bridge Competition.

The competition supplements the education of civil engineering students with a comprehensive, student-driven project experience that covers conception and design through fabrication, erection, and testing, and culminating in a steel structure that meets client specifications and optimizes performance and economy.

The competition tackles real-world engineering issues such as spatial constraints, material properties, strength, serviceability, fabrication and erection processes, safety, aesthetics and cost. It requires effective teamwork and builds project management skills for tomorrow's engineers.
