The Sacramento Municipal Utility District and California State University, Sacramento, have signed an agreement to explore ways to enhance job opportunities in the energy industry for CSUS engineering and computer science graduates, create research opportunities for students and faculty and pursue external funding for research and technical demonstration projects.
CSUS President Alexander Gonzalez and John Di Stasio, SMUDs outgoing general manager and CEO, signed the agreement last Friday. Di Stasio is retiring from SMUD this Friday.
With Sac States ongoing partnership with SMUD, Everyone in our region stands to benefit, from the students who pursue careers in the utilities industry to the millions of consumers who depend on clean and reliable energy, Gonzalez said. The future of power generation will be shaped by technology and renewable energy, and Sacramento States programs in engineering and computer science are an ideal match.
