Each year, students from the Drexel American Society of Civil Engineers [ASCE] student group compete in the ASCE National Concrete Canoe Competition, providing a practical application for what they learn in the classroom. Participating teams compete in four separate categories working to design, showcase, race and present their concrete canoe to judges.
