A team of Mississippi State engineering students recently captured first place at the Utility Engineering & Surveying Institute Surveying Competition at the American Society of Civil Engineers Deep South Student Conference.
The competition consisted of four separate tasks, each involving three team members, which demonstrate land surveying techniques. The tasks included pacing, differential leveling, building stakeout and determining the depth of a proposed sewer line and the cut at each station.
Members of the team, all civil engineering students in the Bagley College of Engineering, included:
James Coleman – team captain
The event was hosted by Louisiana State University.
