Thursday, 15 June 2023

The GT Sustainable Solutions Team won first prize at the ASCE Civil Engineering Student Championships. The team focused on creating a successful future around growing roots in communities for the 2023 ASCE Sustainable Solutions Competition–Envisioning a New Downtown. Georgia Tech was also named the fan favorite of the competition.

Sustainable Solutions student teams from around the world competed in ASCE’s regional student symposia throughout the spring, with 16 teams advancing to the Society-wide finals at the University of Wisconsin–Platteville June 10-12.

This year’s competition challenged teams to create a downtown block of “Engineer Street” site design for the fictional “City of ASCE” that could revitalize an underutilized area into a gathering place for the community while incorporating Envision sustainable infrastructure standards.
