There are a ton of ways to be involved in the Steel Bridge team here at UW Madison. Here’s a breakdown major-by-major for how Steel bridge applies to all engineers.
- Structural engineering: is the primary focus of the design. The idea is to figure out how to distribute the load of 2500lbs through the bridge to the feet with the minimal amount of deflection.
- Construction Management: The Steel Bridge competition success is driven by a solid schedule with defined deadlines to be met. A project manager is almost essential for our team to succeed.
