ASCE Concrete Canoe Competition

About the Competition

This year's first ever Virtual ASCE Society-wide Concrete Canoe Competition will be held online as part of the 2021 Virtual Concrete Canoe Competition.

The ASCE Concrete Canoe Competition provides civil engineering students an opportunity to gain hands-on, practical experience and leadership skills by working with concrete mix designs and project management and increases awareness of the value and benefits of ASCE membership among civil engineering students and faculty in order to foster lifelong membership and participation in the Society.

Although the first ASCE Concrete Canoe Competition was held in 1988, the history of Concrete Canoe in the United States actually began in the 1960s, when a small number of ASCE Student Chapters began holding intramural concrete canoe races. 

Then, in the 1970s, both the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign  and the University of California, Berkeley  claim to have held the first regional competition. In the more than 30 years since, the students' efforts to combine engineering excellence and hydrodynamic design to construct water-worthy canoes have culminated in an advanced form of concrete construction and racing technique known as the "America's Cup of Civil Engineering."
