Our Surveying and Mapping Program has received its second consecutive Surveying Education Award from the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying. The award — presented Thursday — also came with a check for $10,000.
UA is one of only five schools in the nation to have won the award twice.
At the award ceremony, surveying program faculty debuted two new 3D learning tools — an augmented reality sand table and a laser scanner.
“These exciting, 3D learning tools will be used to grab young students’ attention, with the goal of having them consider the surveying profession as a career,” said Gary Schuller, professor and program director. He is pictured above at far left, with Dean Ringle, executive director of the County Engineers Association of Ohio, and John Greenhalge, executive director of the Ohio State Board of Registration for Professional Engineers and Professional Surveyors.
Surveying and Mapping faculty are already scheduled to demonstrate the new 3D technology to local high school students.
