About

Have you ever wondered how fast a toboggan on concrete skis can go? Or how to make a canoe out of pure concrete? These are just a few of the design challenges the University of Waterloo’s Concrete Team aims to solve every year!

By combining the knowledge and experience from engineering undergraduates of all disciplines, the team is able to compete annually at two highly renowned national engineering design competitions: the Great Northern Concrete Toboggan Race and the Canadian National Concrete Canoe Competition.

Each year we strive to be better, create more innovative designs, and above all learn from and connect with fellow engineering undergraduates across the country. As the oldest student design team at the University of Waterloo, we aim to set an example for design innovation and competitive spirit.
