Concrete Canoe

What is the Queen's Concrete Canoe Team?

  •  The Queen’s Concrete Canoe Team (QCCT) is a completely student-run, competitive design team that competes in the annual Canadian National Concrete Canoe Competition (CNCCC)
  • Students collaborate in every stage of the project to meet the unique challenge of building a canoe made of concrete. Applying classroom knowledge, and trying some ideas of their own, students are encouraged to think outside the box to create an innovative and ultimately successful solution.
  • Students oversee every step from the design and construction to promotion and sponsorship and, of course, race day.
  • Queen's Engineering graduates are industry leaders and cooperation with the students at the undergraduate level can be an important investment for the future.
  • Queen’s Engineering students are motivated and resourceful and strive to make the most of all industry relations

Race Record

  • Queen's University concrete canoe team has a proven track record with ten years of successful participation in the competition.
  • We have won several of the Women's sprint and endurance races and have always traditionally finished top three in the mixed sprint.
  • Queen's is proud to continue its involvement in the competition, having placed 3rd overall in 2006 with a first place oral presentation and second place technical report, and having hosted the competition in 2007.
