Wroclaw Student Steel Bridge Contest is the first project of its kind in Europe. The goal of the competition is to simulate the conditions which future engineers will face during their daily work. WSSBC consists of several stages:
• Construction design
• Manufacturing steel elements
• Construction assembly and load test
The competition is open to the public. The inspection and assembly phase of WSSBC take place in a specially designated area next to the Wroclaw University of Technology. While the load test is carried out in Accredited Laboratory of Institute of Building Engineering at Wroclaw Univeristy of Technology. The competition will be recorded and displayed on the large video screen located near the tribune.
Participating in WSSBC is the best way for students to confirm their knowledge and put it practice. The goal of the competition is to simulate the conditions which future engineers will face during their daily work. In addition, the competition aims to raise awareness of real issues, such as: strength of materials, maintenance, fabrication and assembly process, safety, esthetics and costs. It develops teamwork, tests organizational skills of future engineers, stimulates innovative thinking and effective use of professional design solutions.
