Facilities

Equipment Support Center

The Equipment Support Center (The Shop) is likely the best-equipped shop of its kind in the CSU system. It is stocked with modern CNC machines, in addition to a compliment of more traditional mills, lathes, presses, welding equipment, and optical repair. The shop employs three fulltime technicians that serve the maintenance and new equipment needs of the college.

Electronics Support Services

The NSM Electronics Shop handles the repair and maintenance of much of the electronic instrumentation within the college.

Anechoic Chamber

The Sacramento State anechoic chamber and associated acoustics capability is a major, unique facility within the college. This two-story, walk-in chamber is used to conduct accurate sound measurements. Acoustic isolation of over 70 dB minimizes influence of outside noise. The non-reflective properties of the walls extend over the frequency 100 to 15,000 Hz.

Well Field

The Department of Geology has the nation's largest on-campus wellfield, with eighteen monitoring wells and two extraction wells within easy walking distance of the classroom.  These wells are used for classroom demonstrations, senior and graduate student research projects, and training classes for local government and industry groups.

Currently in the planning stages, the Space and Science Center will be the heart of Science II, the next academic building to be built at Sac State.This state of the art building will house a planetarium, observatory, and Foucault pendulum.
