NCEES Surveying Education Award

The NCEES Surveying Education Award recognizes surveying/geomatics programs that have a broad and robust curriculum and best reflect NCEES’ mission to advance licensure for surveyors in order to safeguard the health, safety, and welfare of the public.

The award jury considered criteria such as student outcomes and involvement, outreach and recruitment, and the promotion of licensure.
