Reinforcing the University's reputation for excellence in innovation, the U.S. Department of Energy has selected Sacramento State as one of 20 universities worldwide to compete in the prestigious Solar Decathlon 2015. The decathlon challenges student teams to design, build and operate solar-powered homes that are cost-effective, energy-efficient and attractive. "This places Sac State among the top engineering, design and construction schools in the nation and the world," says Gareth Figgess, a Construction Management faculty member who helped Sac State land the decathlon spot.
