Model Building Competition is one of ICE's signature events which encourages participants to utilise their engineering knowledge from books to construct a civil engineering model.

It is a team competition where students are given limited materials and time to build a model according to the pre-announced specifications. This competition also requires students to present their engineering justification of the model built by which they would further polish their presentation skills. The theme this year is "Bridge".

Everything you need to know about entering can be found in the entry pack.

Competition Format

Model building: Teams are given 210 minutes (i.e. three hours and a half) to complete the model according to specifications of the competition by using materials and tools provided by ICE only.

Testing: The model will be tested based on the project specifications. The assessment of the structural performance includes both physical measurements (i.e. dimensions, self-weight) and structural integrity/efficiency (i.e. loading performance).

Presentation: Each team is given 5 minutes to illustrate their engineering justification regarding the model in English only.
