The Pacific South West Conference (PSWC) is ASCE’s annual student chapter competition that puts civil engineering skills to the test. The competition involves a wide range of events including, but not limited to, concrete canoe, steel bridge, environmental design, geotechnical design, surveying, quiz bowl, technical paper, and concrete frisbee, bowling, and shotput.  The competition features three full days of events with an awards banquet on the last day. Over 1000 civil & environmental engineering students compete each year, representing 18 major universities in California, Nevada, Arizona, and Hawaii.

Volleyball Tournament

In addition to the engineering competitions, the teams engage in other fun events such as this volleyball tournament and a scavenger hunt

Our design teams spend most of the year preparing for their competitions at PSWC. The 18 competing universities pose a high level of competition, but our Environmental team won first place at PSWC! Our canoe and bridge teams are improving every year and need your help to ensure victory!
