Winning teams then travel to Reno, NV in February to compete nationally. 2022 marked the 7th year in a row that Clarkson Construction Engineering Management has had a team place at the regional level.
Scholarships and Recognition in National and Regional Professional Societies Competitions
Every year the CEM faculty advertise, encourage and support student applications across the Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) Department to both the national Associated General Contractors (AGC) of America and the AGC NYS competitions. What is especially significant is that Clarkson students were awarded seven of the 22 scholarships given out by AGC NYS in 2022, roughly a third, from all the Civil Engineering, Construction Technology, and /or Construction Management student applicants across New York State. Clarkson students are often selected to be a part of the American Society of Civil Engineers – Construction Institute (ASCE-CI) “Student Days” competition held each summer.
