This year's canoe, named Descendant, is Grey Black and Red. Descendant features refined concrete inlays as well as a new overlay technique developed by this year's team to create an affect unlike any the team has presented before. See the pictures below for details of the canoe.
We want to thank everyone who supported us throughout the past year and years. Without the support of industry alumni and parents, we would never be able to continue our tradition of success at the highest level of civil engineering student competition.
