Students from Trine University’s chapter of the American Society for Civil Engineers (ASCE) took second place at the organization’s 2021 Great Lakes Regional Conference,
held virtually and hosted by Purdue University April 10-11.
The Great Lakes Region includes 450 students from 18 ASCE student chapters in Indiana,
Illinois and Wisconsin. Purdue, Notre Dame, Rose-Hulman and Northwestern are among
the schools that competed in events related to civil engineering.
Trine was second overall based on combined scores of all competitions, and finished
first in the following:
- “Concrete Cornhole” competition. Members created a concrete cornhole board, then competed
against other schools using that board. Team members included Grant Winterkorn of
Goshen, Ohio, Matt Baker of Green Springs, Ohio, Hallie Fenimore of Rushville, Indiana,
Arizona Lenski of Merrillville, Indiana, and Jackson Huckeby of Freeland, Michigan.
Winterkorn and Baker competed in the event.
- Surveying competition: A surveying team completed a set of surveying tasks developed
by ASCE’s Utility Engineering and Surveying Institute (UESI). Trine’s team consisted
of Bill Kennelly of Chardon, Ohio, Luciano Bonaveri of Colombia and Erin Haase of
Other competitions included a technical paper, a sustainable solutions project, quiz
bowl and an AutoCAD competition.
