Thursday, May 27, 2021

ANGOLA, IN - Students from Trine University's chapter of the American Society for Civil Engineers took second place at the organization's 2021 Great Lakes Regional Conference, held virtually and hosted by Purdue University April 10-11.

The Great Lakes Region includes 450 students from 18 ASCE student chapters in Indiana, Illinois and Wisconsin. Purdue, Notre Dame, Rose-Hulman and Northwestern are among the schools that competed in events related to civil engineering.

Trine was second overall based on combined scores of all competitions, and finished first in the "Concrete Cornhole" competition where members created a concrete cornhole board, then competed against other schools using that board. They also finished first in the Surveying competition where a surveying team completed a set of surveying tasks developed by ASCE's Utility Engineering and Surveying Institute.

Other competitions included a technical paper, a sustainable solutions project, quiz bowl and an AutoCAD competition.
