Last month, the CU Denver Student Chapter of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), in partnership with Metropolitan State University of Denver, hosted the 2016 Rocky Mountain Student Conference. Over the three-day event, 440 people attended from 14 schools across five states.
One event, the Steel Bridge Competition, was held at the Auraria campus with two construction lanes, one lateral pull test station, and two vertical loading stations. The Concrete Canoe Races were held at Soda Lake in Lakewood and included sprints, team paddles, and other fun activities taking place throughout the day.
Congratulations to our Student Chapter of ASCE on an event well done!

Faculty conduct research that spans our five disciplines of civil, electrical and mechanical engineering, bioengineering, and computer science and engineering. The college collaborates with industry from around the state; our laboratories and research opportunities give students the hands-on experience they need to excel in the professional world.
