Purdue Civil Wide Bridge Bust

WHEN: April 3rd
This event has a very similar format to the highschool Bridge Bust event above, but this competition will be between the students here at Purdue ! You will be designing a small bridge made out of balsa wood. In early March, we will bring all the teams together to load them.
Sign up in teams of up to 5 . To sign up and collect materials and rules, just stop by the ASCE office (HAMP 2154) during office hours (posted on our website). The fee to compete is only $5 for the whole team and it's a great experience not only for your resume, but also for yourself! The bridges will be loaded in April during CE Week, so the sooner you sign up, the more time you will have.

How To Join!

COST: $25 or $20 if ASCE National Member
Dues can be dropped off to an officer in HAMP 2154 during the office hours posted. To join ASCE national go to the ASCE national webpage at or stop our office. You will be able to pay dues at any of our general meetings or industry speaker meetings!
