BRIDGE is an interdisciplinary case competition hosted at McGill University and sponsored by WSP that brings together students from diverse academic backgrounds to examine and propose solutions to complex sustainability challenges.

This year our theme is renewable energy and we've partnered with the Barkley Project Group to develop a real-life case that requires a combination of technical, scientific, business, and policy skills to tackle.

We will be welcoming expert judges from coast to coast working in fields such as climate change and resilience, sustainability consulting, environmental engineering, project management, policy analysis, business development, clean energy engineering, climate finance, etc.

Date: Friday, January 22nd - 30th, 2021

Location: Zoom


Teams will have the chance to win over $1000 in cash prizes. The winning team members will have their names engraved on BRIDGE’s perpetual trophy. Additionally, CV’s will be shared with WSP recruiters and top performers may be given the opportunity to interview for an internship.
