DSC_0117Geotechnical Engineering Competition | Undergraduate Competition

The Geotechnical Engineering Competition (GEC) is a competitive event spearheaded by GeoRox back in 2013. In teams of four, students compete against each other in a simulated geotechnical design problem. The teams are given six hours to apply their skills and knowledge to come up with a solution. At the end of the allotted time, they are to present their findings to a panel of judges.

The students have an opportunity to enhance their technical and soft skills by competing. DSC_0100Students in 2nd and 3rd year are introduced to industry standard software. Students in 4th year have the opportunity to practice their leadership and managerial skills. After the competition, all students also have the chance to network with the competition judges. 

With our two wonderful VP Academics, Clarisse Owen and Katrijn Bjornson, we had another successful competition year! Congratulations to the winners! If you have inquiries about the 2025 GEC, please don’t hesitate to reach out.


Annual Alumni & Industry Dinner | Networking Event
