On November 16, 2022, an award ceremony was held at Florida Atlantic University (FAU) Boca Raton Campus to celebrate the achievement of Florida Atlantic University Geomatics Program which was recognized with a $15,000 surveying education award from National Council of Examiners for Engineering & Surveying (NCEES). FAU Geomatics Engineering is one of the seven university programs in the nation that received the NCEES Surveying Education Award in 2022. CPC’s Landon “Alfie” Cross, PSM, who serves as a current board member of the Florida Board of Professional Surveyors and Mappers (BPSM) was invited to present the award on behalf of NCEES.
According to NCEES, “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 is intended to encourage programs to engage their students with other professionals, introduce them to both historical and new technology, and promote licensure.”
