Timber Bridge Design Project
"The timber bridge project gave me an introduction to structural engineering, allowing me to see what the field was really about."
— Kathryn Cyr '04
Civil & Environmental Engineering
Have you ever gone over a bridge and wondered "How in the heck does this thing support so many vehicles day in and day out without falling down?" Wonder no further. Just join the Timber Bridge team and learn to design and build a bridge that can withstand loads of up to 4500 pounds without "falling down", i.e. deflecting more than 1/4 inch.
