We are thrilled to be back in-person at the 35th annual Concrete Canoe Competition to be held during the first weekend in June at Louisiana Tech University.

In addition to the concrete canoe races, we recently welcomed two new competitions that will conduct their Society-wide finals: the UESI Surveying Competition and the Sustainable Solutions Competition-Tiny House Challenge. These events allow us to showcase a wider array of civil engineering disciplines.

About the competition

The ASCE Concrete Canoe Competition provides students a unique opportunity to gain hands-on practical experience while testing their skills with concrete mix designs and project management challenges.

The first ASCE Concrete Canoe Competition was held in 1988, but the history of Concrete Canoe goes back to the 1960s, when a small number of ASCE Student Chapters began holding intramural concrete canoe races.

This elite competition combining engineering excellence, hydrodynamic design, and racing technique is known as the "America's Cup of Civil Engineering."

The ASCE Concrete Canoe Competition was made possible with funding from the ASCE Foundation.
