BRICO 2018 – The Nordic Steel Bridge Competition

BRICO 2018 is a great opportunity for students studying civil engineering, mechanical engineering or architecture (students from other faculties are also welcome) to test their designing skills in competitive and fun atmosphere. Best teams will receive considerable monetary prizes. BRICO 2018 is not only about competition. During five days in Estonia a lot of different social and cultural events are planned as well.

Up to 5 new applying teams will be accepted to the finals, granted they send all the files necessary for level 1 and level 2 pre-evaluations and their design complies with the rules of the competition.
