School of Engineering, Design and Construction students place fourth in national competition

The team, (L-R) Surahbi Maheswari, Jordan Lyons, Tim Smith, Justin Booth, Stephen Brogan and Dr. Tan Qu, visited the Hoover Dam as a field trip.

A team of five Seminole State College of Florida engineering and construction students finished fourth nationally out of nine participating teams at the 2016 Design-Build Conference & Expo held in Las Vegas on Nov. 3, 2016.

At the national level, they faced fierce competition from Iowa State University, the NewSchool of Architecture & Design, Temple University, the University of Arizona, the University of Cincinnati, the University of Colorado Boulder, the University of Oklahoma and Washington State University.

The team of Stephen Brogan, Surabhi Maheshwari, Justin Booth, Tim Smith and Jordan Lyons, along with faculty advisor Dr. Tan Qu, earned the outstanding opportunity to compete at the national level after placing first at the Southeast Regional competition. The strong Southeast region included entries from top construction programs such as Clemson University, the University of Southern Mississippi, and two teams from the University of Florida.

The competition involved creating a mock design-build proposal. Each team was asked to adapt a power plant into a university science building and design a new facility alongside it.

Seminole State College of Florida's School of Engineering, Design and Construction offers more than 50 degrees and certificates, including bachelor's degrees in construction, engineering technology, information systems technology and interior design. The programs prepare students for a wide variety of careers in the built environment and information technology.
