What started as a way to give students the exposure and experience they deserve, is now starting to grow into a yearly tradition with more submissions every year: the SCIA student contest.
The idea is that students who use SCIA Engineer can show us their art of structural design. This way students can maximise their exposure and show the international industry their work. Not only do winners receive extensive media attention, they also get a money prize.
This year, the jury had the very difficult task to pick just three winners because the technical quality all the participating projects was really high. Also the topics of the presented works were very interesting. All the participants showed a high level of expertise in the field of their studies. At SCIA, we’re very happy that these talented young people will soon join the ranks of civil engineers and will shape our future.
After a long and serious discussion the jury selected 3 winning projects:
"The jury was impressed by the comprehensiveness of the approach. Seventeen submitted SCIA Engineer projects helped the winner to analyse and assess different variants of a bow bridge, select the most convenient one, and analyse different stages of the construction process."
"The jury highly values the way all the challenges were taken up: complicated geometry coming from an innovative architectural design, steel-concrete composite material, seismicity. The jury also appreciates that the geometry was imported from a CAD software."
"The jury awards the outstanding usage of SCIA Engineer features, together with a very interesting and eye appealing shape of the canopy. Also the physical scaled model of the project nicely accompanies this attractive and absorbing design."
The rest of the top 10 looks as follows:
JoseLuis Rodriguez, Slovenia
Generative Design for Constructability improvements with BIM|Lean approach
