ASCE Concrete Canoe

We are a team of civil engineering students at UNC Charlotte who design and construct a concrete canoe each year. Our group participates annually in the American Society of Civil Engineers national concrete canoe competition where we compete against other local, national, and international universities with respected engineering programs.

This year's regional Carolinas Competition is being held on April 4-6, 2019 at NC State, and the national competition is on June 6-8 at the Florida Institute of Technology.

We are crowdfunding to help pay for construction materials for the canoe and display (concrete mix materials, wood, tools, etc.), printing costs for the design paper hard copies, travel expenses, and other competition essentials.

Pouring the Canoe


UNC Charlotte first started participating in concrete canoe competitions in the early 70's. Last year, UNC Charlotte won the regional competition (beating out teams such as NC State, Duke, Clemson, and USC) for the first time in two decades. We went on to compete at Nationals where we placed 15th overall and won the Spirit of the Competition Award. We hope to continue that legacy and inspire future engineers with our success this year.
