Construction Students Place in National Competition
A team of construction engineering technology students placed second at the 24th annual Associated Schools of Construction Student Competition. The students placed in the 2011 Preconstruction Services Division, which is open to schools across the country.
The student teams were assigned a problem with a set of plans from an industry sponsor that built the project. Teams are required to submit a construction plan with thorough estimates of materials, labor, and costs. Students were also required to present and defend the details of their plan.
Cal Poly Pomona's team includes: team leader Ivan Galaviz, Patrick Nabavi, Michelle Iskandar, Gilbert Rios, Dang Le, Emmanuel Bageris and Professor Julie Wei.
More than 50 students and seven teams were involved from the engineering technology department. A total of 43 schools and 1,200 students participated in the competition.
