Civil students excel in their first ever Troitsky Bridge Building Competition

The winners of the Lassonde Bridge Building competition, which took place last November, were sent this March to compete in the Troitsky Bridge Building Competition in Concordia University in Montreal.

This is an annual competition where engineering students design and build model bridges out of popsicle sticks, toothpicks, white glue and dental floss. The competition tests the participants’ design and engineering skills.

This was the first time a team from York University participated in any civil engineering competition.  Due to the hard work and dedication of each of the team members, they placed 11th out of 47 teams nationwide.

This is an amazing score for first time participants and a great way to showcase our program and talented students.  Congratulations to our participants!
