UBC Seismic Achieved 8th place at the EERI Seismic Design Competition 2024

UBC Seismic recently competed in the prestigious EERI Seismic Design Competition held in Seattle. This year, amidst stiff competition from 40 universities spanning the globe, UBC Seismic stood tall, both figuratively and literally, as they demonstrated their ingenuity and skill in seismic design.

The team’s 5-ft tall balsa wood tower withstood the rigorous tests of ground motions with flying colors. Among the distinguished gathering of competitors, UBC Seismic secured an impressive 8th place overall. In addition, UBC Seismic excelled in specific categories, winning the 3rd spot in Architecture and 6th place in Performance Predictions.

Such triumphs wouldn’t have been possible without the immense support of industry sponsors and faculty advisors. UBC Seismic extends heartfelt gratitude to these invaluable partners whose guidance and backing supported their participation in this competition: “We would like to thank our industry sponsors and faculty advisors who made it possible for us to participate in this year’s competition. We appreciate their ongoing support and look forward to working with many of them next year.”
