SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Sacramento District engineers Roger Henderson and Steve Saepoff explained their jobs and the diversity of career opportunities with the Corps of Engineers to students attending the clean tech networking mixer on the campus of California State University - Sacramento here April 11.

The California Upsilon Chapter of engineering honor society Tau Beta Pi hosted the mixer, which doubled as an opportunity to showcase the future Powerhouse Science Center, a state of the art education center planned in downtown Sacramento, aimed at promoting science, technology, engineering and math - or STEM - education for young people in the region.

The Corps joined more than a dozen local firms and partners to support the education center, and to promote the Sacramento region as a local employer in clean technology jobs.

Ashley Moran, a member of Tau Beta Pi and a civil engineering student at CSUS, is currently employed as a student assistant in the geotechnical and structural branch at the California Department of Water Resources.

"In classes, many of the professors encourage us to get out and meet employers, but this was the best chance to meet actual professionals in the field," Moran said. When she graduates from CSUS in a year, she "will definitely be looking for a job at the Corps," she said.
