We are team Eklavya – a troop of engineering student from VIT university with a key interest in Civil Engineering. Our interest has led us towards our goal now – to build a canoe made of concrete and a bridge made out of steel . We have done this thrice, initially in the IIT Madras National Competition, but the other two that we have done are pretty much the biggest concrete competition around the globe – ASCE National Concrete Competition, North Carolina. This makes us one of the only two International teams that are being given this honour.

We are ‘Civil Engineers’, we build, break and build again! We are among the very few teams in India that wish to take application of civil engineering up by a notch.

The ASCE (American Society of Civil Engineers) National Concrete Canoe Competition (NCCC)/ National Student Steel Bridge Competition provides students with a practical application of the engineering principles they learn in the classroom, along with important team and project management skills they will need in their careers. The event challenges the students’ knowledge, creativity and stamina, while showcasing the versatility and durability of concrete as a building material.

ASCE`s maiden Indian journey began in the year 1988 with the vision to raise Indian Civil Engineering on a global platform. Since its inception, the organization has always been proactive in taking various stands in the development of civil Engineering to generate a positive impact on the society. American Society of Civil Engineers – India Section`s primary objective is to encourage and provide a stage for all its members – students, professors, researchers, practicing engineers working in the field of civil engineering either directly or indirectly, to enhance their technical and professional development. Strong social commitments have always gained a top priority in the organization`s activities.
