Troitsky Bridge Building Competition – 2024

Friday February 23rd – Monday February 26th


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.


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!

Started in 1984 by our very own Building, Civil and Environmental Engineering (BCEE) Department, Troitsky consists of designing and assembling a Bridge by only using popsicle sticks, floss, toothpicks and glue, and putting it to the test under immense pressure by our iconic Hydraulic Press: The Crusher.

This Competition is meant to challenge our students’ minds and push all possible boundaries of creativity. After 39 years of success, with over 300 students from all over Canada and the United States, Troitsky 2024 will be bigger and better than ever! Expect new events, more spirit and the Second edition of the Troitsky Career Fair! Spanning over three days, our main focus is to create bridges between students and partners and expand our presence on a provincial and national level!
