Original Project Scope
eMi Canada and eMi East Africa have an exciting partnership with the Faculty of Engineering at Kyambogo University to provide an Industrial Training program for Ugandan Geomatics Engineering students.
This surveying practicum allows Ugandan students - well versed in the theory of geomatics - to build competency and confidence in the application of this theory. Students are provided with hands-on practice using a variety of survey equipment and with mentoring by a small team of eMi surveyors.
The program includes time on campus, learning software and equipment, as well as time in the field completing a topographic survey for an upcoming eMi project.
Throught the training, the eMi team will not only have an opportunity to enhance the technical capabilities of developing world design professionals, but also to provide guidance in standards and ethical practices, building capacity for a world of hope.
