DENTON (UNT), Texas -- The University of North Texas is hosting the 2014 International Student Competition on Cold-Formed Steel Design for the fourth year, and entries can now be submitted to UNT's College of Engineering.

Created by Engineering Technology Associate Professor Cheng Yu, the competition helps build interest in cold-formed steel, an economical and recyclable construction material.

Full-time undergraduate and graduate students from any university in the world can enter the competition. Entries should be submitted by Sept. 30, and winners will be announced in December. Winners will receive cash prizes ranging from $250 to $600.

"Cold-form steel structures are the newest generation of building systems enabling the construction industry to utilize 21st century inventions in manufacturing, building information modeling and logistics technologies," Yu said. "UNT is hosting the only student competition in the cold-form steel community worldwide, and it is a great thing to have on campus."
