Construction Management shines again in national competition

Sacramento State's Construction Management students continue their winning ways, bringing home two national championships from the weekend's Associated Schools of Construction competition in Sparks, Nev. The Concrete Solutions team repeated as national champs, the first time any school has posted back-to-back wins in that category, and the Electrical Problem team posted its first national victory. Two other teams, Mechanical Problem and Design Build, also scored high. Supporting the students were members of the Sacramento Construction Management Education Foundation, an advisory board made up of regional industry leaders.
