Structural Design Scholarship & Competition in Structural Engineering

This was established in partnership with the University of Calgary in 1984. 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.
