Sac State emerges as national power in engineering competitions

Sacramento State has won a triple crown of sorts in student engineering competitions this fall - with the crowning jewel being Construction Management's national design-build victory Nov. 6 in Las Vegas. (The winning team is pictured.) In October, another Construction Management team topped a regional health care preconstruction competition in Chicago; and most recently, a Civil Engineering squad won first place in an area structural-design event. The University's engineering program has become a national power, handily beating out higher-profile universities.  Story and photos
