What’s your inventive infrastructure idea? The ASCE Innovation Contest can help it become a reality.

The fourth annual ASCE Innovation Contest is accepting submittals through March 4.

Enter in any of five categories:

• improvements in clean water

• Internet of Things

• new construction materials

• next-generation transportation

• sustainable engineering

“Innovation is how we lead change that improves the build environment, reduces life-cycle costs, and moves to a resilient future.,” said Marc Hoit, Ph.D., F.SEI, F.ASCE, Innovation Contest chair and vice chancellor for information technology at North Carolina State University.

“Civil engineers need to build the new ideas and companies that will lead the future solutions for improved infrastructure,” Hoit said.

Each of the five category winners will be invited to an Innovation Contest celebration event at ASCE headquarters next June to share their ideas with industry leaders and compete for the overall contest prize.

New for 2019, the Innovation Contest will award the most entrepreneurial submission.
