DE&CO Design and Construct International Steel Bridge Competition at Boğaziçi University Construction Club
De&Co, Design & Construct, is one of the oldest and biggest competitions of our club. In this event, teams attempt to build the best 6 meters wide steel bridge among other competitors. Applicant teams send us their projects. After evaluation of Boğaziçi University Civil Engineering Department jury, pre-qualified 16 teams secure their place to build their bridge in South Campus overlooking the fascinating Bosporus. You may look into De&Co Rules and Regulations file for more details.
We think that this competition is beneficial for our competitors to meet people from the construction sector from different countries and to breathe the air of the competitive environment, which is the fragment of the business world. In addition, gaining a project development experience with all its stages will provide definite benefits for their business life. We would be very happy if you could share our event with your students.
