2019 Structural Design Scholarship Competition

2019 Structural Design Scholarship Competition


Five teams, five bridges and five heavy loads.

Third-year civil engineering students at the University of Calgary went head-to-head on Tuesday, testing their designs in hopes of winning DIALOG’s $7500 Structural Design Scholarship.

The scholarship, established in partnership with the University of Calgary in 1984, gives students an opportunity to put their design and construction skills to the test, bringing their bridge design to life and testing it to failure.




It is awarded every fall to a third- or fourth-year student of the University of Calgary’s Civil Engineering Program who participates in the University of Calgary Structural Design Competition. The award is based on merit and encourages study in structural engineering at the University of Calgary.

Each year an engineering design problem is identified, and individuals or teams compete to design the best solution.  This typically requires the design and construction of a model, accompanied by a brief written report and an oral presentation.

Three finalists from this year’s competition will be invited to DIALOG’s Calgary studio later in November to present their design to a panel of judges who will award the scholarship.
