Each summer, the Surveying and Mapping faculty of Tyler Junior College and the local surveying community host a residential camp to expose young students to educational and career opportunities in Land Surveying and the Geospatial Sciences. This camp is 100% underwritten by the college, Surveying Education Foundation of Texas and local companies, enabling us to offer it expense free for attendees. The camp begins with check-in late afternoon on Sunday, June 7th and will end with a catered meal on Tuesday, June 9th. Registration is required and available online at:
This event will be facilitated by the Surveying and Mapping faculty, current students and industry professionals. Topics covered will include; GPS Technology, Computer-Aided Drafting, Graphic Information Systems, 3D Laser Scanning Technology, Total Station measurements, how Texas History impacts Land Surveying and educational/career opportunities in this rapidly expanding industry.
