The ACIA is proud to have served as the primary sponsor for the University of Alabama’s American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) student chapter at this year’s regional concrete canoe competition. The association’s sponsorship allowed the 11 person team to travel to the ASCE Southeast Region Competition March 19 – 21, 2015.
At the March event, the UA team competed with 27 other universities from the southeast and Puerto Rico. After all of the scores were added up, the University of Alabama team finished 9th. The concrete canoe completion includes both a racing and presentation portion. Pictured are the UA presentation of their boat named Vulcan.
In addition to the concrete competition, students from the university competed in a cylinder breaking program and concrete ladder golf competition.
