AECOM-SAICE INTERNATIONAL BRIDGE BUILDING COMPETITION - 2013
AECOM, formerly BKS, is the naming-rights sponsor of the finals of this worthwhile and exciting competition for 2013!
Without their generous sponsorship the finals could not happen and all involved sincerely thank them for being involved
in ensuring the future of civil engineering by enticing learners to consider civil engineering as a career, through
this inspirational competition.
Many SAICE branches have already done their regional competitions and have submitted the results to national office.
Thank you for your sterling efforts! This opportunity to engage with learners is a great opportunity to attract young
people to the civil engineering industry - especially in view of the present debate regarding the lack of appropriately
qualified persons in all tiers of government in South Africa.
The finals of the AECOM-SAICE International Bridge Building Competition 2013 will be held:
||Friday 30 August 2013
St Albans College, 110 Clearwater Road, Lynnwood Glen, Pretoria
The regional results have to be finalised by Friday, 31 July 2013.
As in previous years teams will arrive the day before the finals, i.e. Thursday 29 August 2013 and as in the past,
they will be accommodated in the St Albans College hostels.
On Saturday 31 August 2013 there will be a site visit – hosted by AECOM.
We aim to involve learners from Grade 9 to 12. Each team has to consist of THREE learners only.
There is still an opportunity to change the lives of learners, who would otherwise perhaps never have had the opportunity
to be in the running for an exceptional experience in the big city and of perhaps winning a part of the substantial prize-money
for the three top teams!
