About the Competition

The Construction Institute Student Conference Competition provides a construction engineering experience for civil engineering students through a challenge project. Team tasks include developing a schedule, estimate, and risk management documents, as well as delivering an oral presentation.

This competition will continue to be offered as a pilot competition in 2022.

Rules and RFIs

The Construction Institute Student Conference Competition rules invite student teams to respond to a Request for “Presentations” (RFP) in order to be awarded a local construction project. As part of the RFP, teams will develop a schedule, estimate, and technical assessment and risk management documents, and present on their plan for construction.

Student teams should read the rules and addendum thoroughly and seek clarifications as necessary.

The competition provides a “Requests for Information (RFI)” period so that student teams can ask questions about the rules. See the rules document for where and when to send RFIs as well as how to access the responses.
