    Project Scope

    Introduction to Survey Practicum
    Location: Uganda Christian University, Mukono

    Engaging students from Civil/Environmental Engineering at Uganda Christian University.

    For the third year running, EMI is partnering with Uganda Christian University (UCU) to deliver a two week Survey Practicum for thirty of their 3rd year Civil/Environmental Engineering students.  This Survey Practicum will compliment a theory course already delivered to these students.

    Geomatics Practicum
    Location: eMi Uganda, Kajjansi

    Engaging Geomatics Engineering students from various East African universities and technical colleges.

    For the fifth year running, EMI will deliver an eight week Survey Practicum to nine East African Geomatics Engineering students as part of their Industrial Training course requirement. 

    This survey practicum allows East African 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.

    Throughout 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.
