Students competed in bridge construction
Student competition BRICO 2017 - The Nordic Steel Bridge Competition took place 17-19 May 2017 in Tallinn with 16 teams. One of the competing teams was made up of students from Master's programme Civil and Architectural Engineering.
The international KTH team, TrussUs, consisted of students Aaron Ruffels (South Africa), Freddie Karlsson (Sweden), Guayente Minchot (Spain) och Samih Ahmed (Sudan). The team was sponsored by KTH, blacksmith company Smederna och The Swedish Institute of Steel Construction (SBI).
TrussUs unfortunately just missed the top three and ended up in a honorable fourth place. It was a close call between the top four teams and the final results were ultimately decided based on the points from the aesthetic assessment.
