Ryan Teves

Deputy Education Director, Historian & Deputy Student Outreach Chair

My name is Ryan Teves, born and raised here in Sacramento, and I am a recent graduate from CSU-Sacramento with my Bachelor’s (2015) and Master’s (2018) degrees in Civil Engineering. Currently, I work for the City of West Sacramento – Public Works Department and have managed and completed two projects and currently working on finishing my third in the less than one year since being with the City. At work, I enjoy drafting with AutoCAD or CivilCAD, reviewing plans and preparing estimates, project managing, and design support and consultation. This upcoming year I plan on completing my professional engineering license, adventuring to a place I have never been before, and donating my time to schools and organizations that offer volunteer services such as Habitat for Humanity. I am very outgoing and love playing sports or being outdoors. During the spring I enjoy the cool and fresh air, during summer I enjoy the long nights and beautiful weather, during the fall I enjoy the holiday festivities, and during the winter I enjoy hot chocolate and eggnog.
