USC PSWC 2015 Team Announced

We’ve finalized our USC team for PSWC 2015! We’ll be bringing 52 members to compete in concrete canoe, steel bridge, environmental designgeowall, transportation, dog house, surveying, concrete bowling, and many more events.

This is the largest competition team we’ve brought to PSWC in recent history, and we’re confident that our excellent members can put up a good fight in defending our 3rd place overall finish from last year’s conference in San Diego. Here’s a comparison between our teams from last year and this year:

2014 USC Team 2015 USC Team
Team Size 41 52
Freshmen 1 7
Percent Female 46% 48%
Formal Design Teams 4 8
Distance to PSWC 125 miles 500 miles
Total Cost for USC ASCE $11,100 $16,800
Corporate Sponsorship $750 $3,350 and counting

Despite facing a further, more expensive trip, our chapter has come together to bring a larger, more diverse team. Now the hard work is kicking in as our eight major and secondary design teams design and build their projects. It’s never too late to get involved, even if you aren’t coming to PSWC!
