Troitsky Bridge Building Competition – 2024
Friday February 23rd – Monday February 26th
ABOUT THE COMPETITION:
The Troitsky Bridge Building Competition Organizing Committee is proud to present its 40th annual Bridge Building Competition.
Held annually since 1984, the Troitsky Bridge Building Competition is a competitive event held at Concordia University in Montreal, Canada. Open to all bachelor’s in engineering students, the competition consists of designing and building a model bridge out of ONLY popsicle sticks, toothpicks, white glue and dental floss. Participating teams of engineering students come from universities across Canada and the United States.
Today, the competition is the largest model bridge building competition on a university level in Canada. Spanning three days, the competition includes an assembly period, presentations in front of a judging panel of industry professionals, networking events and a closing ceremony. What started as a class project proposed by Dr. Michael S. Troitsky of Sir George Williams University (later Concordia University), turned into a large-scale competition with over 200 participating students every year.
WHAT’S NEW ABOUT TROITSKY 2024
It is with immense pride that Concordia University presents the biggest Civil Engineering Competition in Canada, in its 40th Edition: The Troistky Bridge Building Competition!
