 Floating Concrete!? 

It's a thing! Since the 1960s, ASCE student chapters have designed, built, and raced canoes made of concrete. It is weird concrete, but it is still concrete!

This unique challenge aligns with Cal Poly's motto of "Learn by Doing" where students jump in to tackle complex project management and develop innovative design choices. 


 A Decorated History 

Cal Poly SLO has pulled ahead of the competition year after year. The club has earned seven national championship victories, the most out of any university!

In 2023, the Oceana team claimed overall victory at the ASCE Civil Engineering Student Championships.
