  • About the competition

    The ICI-IITM National Concrete Canoe Competition (NCCC) 2015 is the first national level competition to be held at IIT Madras in which students from various universities of all over India make their own canoe, row them and compete. It is a nine month long project in which students perform structural and stability design and study on various materials to build light weight and high strength concrete and build two-seater canoe. They also get exposure to tools in construction project management and an opportunity to develop leadership skills. Each team has to submit two interim reports before submitting the final report. Among the 35 registered teams (each with 12 students) from 9 states, the best 15 teams will be participating in the canoe race. Each team will design and fabricate the concrete canoe at their home institution and transport them to IIT Madras for the final competition/canoe racing during August 21-23, 2015. The competition/racing will be held at the towing tank (82 x 3.2 x 2.8 m), which is a unique facility in IIT Madras. Also, exhibition of canoes, racing and academic/industrial lectures, etc. are planned during the event.
