Mentor Relationships Key to Success at Sac State Precast Studio

Studio includes CE and CM students with intentional overlap and coordination incorporated for deliverables

The primary objective of the Precast Bridge Studio (PBS) at Sacramento State University is to prepare a new generation of civil engineering (CE) and construction management (CM) bridge professionals through a challenging and innovative CE/CM “immersion” course project that requires student teams to design a multi-span precast/prestressed concrete bridge and perform preconstruction services using actual bridge projects under the mentorship of CE and CM bridge industry members. By developing a close relationship between academia and the bridge industry, PBS has generated synergy among faculty, students, and a dedicated team of up to 20 bridge design and construction mentors, as well as among the wider range of industry participants who contribute to the immersion experience—precast producers, bridge designers, construction managers, contractors, software firms, suppliers (including prestressing strand), truckers, and others.
