The University of Akron Surveying and Mapping Mission Statement

The mission of the Surveying program is to provide high-quality, career-focused education that meets the specific needs of the students as they prepare for careers in the surveying, mapping and (GIS/LIS) industries nationwide. Our goal is to provide them with the skills and knowledge they will need to obtain professional registration or technical certification, as appropriate, in their relevant geographic science discipline, and to instill a desire for life-long learning.

How will your program use the prize money to engage your students with other professionals, introduce them to both historical and new technology, and promote licensure?

The prize money will be used for scholarships, student competitions, conferences and complimentary textbooks for incoming freshman with caveats to become active in student organizations and taking the FS test prior to graduation.
