Home to California’s state capital, the Greater Sacramento region is situated at the epicenter of global air quality policy and within the largest U.S. market for electric vehicles. Regional leaders are capitalizing on these strengths to drive innovation and high-quality jobs through the creation of a new engineering center at Sacramento State.
