- About Us
Dr. Hight has been faculty project manager for SCU's two entries into the U.S. Department of Energy's Solar Decathlon competition, an international collegiate contest to design and build efficient and livable solar powered homes. Under his guidance, the 2007 team placed third overall, overcoming a poor architecture score through well-engineered power and thermal systems.
As chair of the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Professor Hight has also incorporated sustainability concepts into the Mechanical Engineering senior design project course. He is a tireless advocate for sustainability studies and project-based, hands-on learning for SCU students.
