Hall Building, Mezzanine

Concordia has an active student-run branch of the international Society of Automotive Engineers. It is composed of students from all engineering disciplines who have a common interest in building and designing on- and off-road vehicles, as well as airplanes. The SAE will demonstrate the various vehicles used in their student competitions and will hold an interactive video car-racing challenge, a power-tools skills competition, and various workshops.

March 8 Concordia Robowars - Hall Building, H-110 (Auditorium)
Robowars is a robotics competition open to all CEGEPS and universities across Canada. Students’ ability to design self-contained, innovative remote-control robots are put to the test in this challenge. This year’s competition includes the classic Sumo Wrestling event for the intermediate robot builders, the new Solar Roller event for the novice builder, and the new RoboArt competition for those with creative minds.

March 9 -17 - Annual Bridge Building Competition
Library Building, Atrium / Hall Building, H-110 (Auditorium)

After 17 years, Concordia’s Bridge Building Competition is still going strong. See how the future builders of tomorrow incorporate ingenuity, creativity and engineering skills to construct sturdy and aesthetically appealing bridges. In past years, some of the structures have successfully withstood maximum load capacities of over 2,000 kg. when submitted to the hydraulic “Crusher.” It’s a finale you won’t want to miss!
