Faculty advisor David Mays, associate professor of civil engineering, is pleased to announce that the 2014-2015 CU Denver chapter of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Steel Bridge Team won first place in the stiffness category, and placed in the top half overall, at last week’s ASCE Rocky Mountain Student Conference at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque. For the first time, as this is the senior design project for some of the team members, you can see the award-winning bridge at the Senior Design Presentations on Friday 5/15/2015 in the North Classroom Atrium.

In related news, our ASCE Student Chapter will be co-hosting next year’s Rocky Mountain Student Conference, in collaboration with Metropolitan State University of Denver, here on the Auraria Campus from Thursday 3/31/2016 through Saturday 4/2/2016.
