Atlas Tube, Chicago, a division of JMC Steel Group, sponsored the eight-member University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) steel bridge team at this year's Great Lakes Student Conference, hosted by the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE). Atlas donated $1,000 to the UIC ASCE Student Chapter for the competition.

In the competition, student teams design and fabricate a one-tenth scale steel bridge. The UIC team constructed its bridge entirely out of hollow structural sections (HSS), with the exception of nuts and bolts.

Atlas Tube produces a variety of steel tubular products and HSS.
