Óbuda University announces RECCS 2014, the 4th World Championship in Spaghetti Bridge Building.

The event is to take place on 30th May 2014, in the central building of Óbuda University, Budapest, Hungary.

The Institutes can apply by maximum three stuctures, in each category. The number of teams per Institute and the number of competitors by teams are not restricted.

Aim

The goal of the event is to bring together engineering students in a challenge; to let them prove their qualities in spaghetti bridge building as an example of design implementation skills. RECCS aims to be the highest level competition in the announced categories and to promote building of friendships and future professional contacts as well.

History & character

RECCS was first organized as a regional event in 2005, with 3 attending countries. In the forthcoming years the ever increasing number of attending countries and the exceptional success of Óbuda University students (best of the world in six consecutive years) led us to organize the first worldwide character competition in 2011.

The contest is a high-standard event; we expect the best university teams. The competition field is balanced, and the best results are top world achievements in their category. The members of the jury are academic professors; our invited speakers are Academy presidents, government members and the Mayor of Budapest. The organization is professional and we use the latest available technique in online internet coverage, high speed camera and break force diagram recording. The event draws considerable media attention.

The competition is organized in two categories: bridge and support and it is open to university students.

Venue

Inhabited by around 2.000.000 inhabitants, located on the banks of the Danube River, Budapest is one of the most beautiful capitals in Europe. As a political, cultural, commercial, industrial and transportation centre of Hungary, Budapest in not only an attractive tourist destination, but also a popular venue of conferences and exhibitions.
