About

UW-Madison students have expressed creativity and imagination through innovation competitions for nearly 20 years. Launched in 2019, the Innovation in CEE Competition, sponsored by The Boldt Company, is the first of its kind to focus on developing new materials, technologies, and solutions for today’s evolving civil and environmental engineering challenges. Focus areas of this competition include structural, material, water resources, transportation, geological, construction, and environmental engineering. Now in its third year, Innovation in CEE encourages students to think outside the box and celebrates the entrepreneurial spirit of the Badger engineering community.
