Video: Meet Cooper Union’s Steel Bridge Team

The Cooper Union Steel Bridge Team is a dedicated group of individuals who annually compete in the ASCE/AISC Steel Bridge Competition. This group combines hands-on and theory to design, fabricate, and construct a 20-foot-long bridge made completely of steel. Along the way, members learn and practice welding, steel cutting, AutoCAD programs, and how to effectively manage a year-long project as part of a team. The Steel Institute of New York, publisher of Metals in Construction magazine, is an annual sponsor of the team.
