Canadian National Steel Bridge Competition 2024

Université Laval, Québec




For the last four years, Canadian universities conceive, build and assemble steel bridges respecting a realistic scenario. To distinguish themselves from other teams, a compromise must be made between the architectural aspect, technical and economic.


The Competition allows students to deepen their knowledge with a practical project. This human experience develops their interpersonal and professional skills. It encourages innovation and creates relationships between students and the industry.


The 2024 Canadian National Steel Bridge Competition will be hosted at Université Laval in Québec, Quebec. Dates to be confirmed.

The competition flourished because of the initiative of two individuals: Éric Lachance-Tremblay and Jean-Luc Martel, former ETS students, who worked with the CSCE and the CISC to develop a high level civil engineering competition. The aforementioned partners had a vision of a competition that will grow to a national level, just like the Student Steel Bridge Competition of ASCE in the United States (where some Canadian universities were already competing). Their involvement, dedication and passion have given birth to this incredible competition.
