NSPS surveying award

Tophies - ELAC Engineering Student Competition Trimble Prize Second Place Associated Division

ELAC Engineering Student Team and Advisor

The 2019 National Society Professional Surveyors (NSPS) Student Competition was held in Arlington Virginia from April 9th thru April 11th, 2019. The task for the student competition was to utilize remotely sensed data in a modern surveying practice for a scientific research project consisting of a technical report, poster and oral presentation. The diverse ELAC surveying team members belong to the Engineering Club and are pursuing different engineering disciplines: biomedical engineering student Maria Gonzalez, civil engineering students Myra Quespi and Leonard Delurintu, environmental engineering student Andrew Pasten and our surveying co-leader students Frank Montelongo and Robert Gonzalez. The surveying team was managed by Professor Juan A. Rodriguez, the Engineering Club Advisor and CTE Liaison. The students surveyed the quad area between E7 and E3 buildings using a drone with high-powered camera attached and a Real Time Kinematics (RTK) receiving device which locates GPS coordinates on the ground with high accuracy utilizing the Global Navigation Satellite Systems. With the information collected by the drone and the RTK, students were able to develop an elevation model, a 3D model, and a topographic map of the quad area.This was ELAC’s first time competing at the NSPS. The ELAC Surveying Team was awarded 2nd placed for NSPS Associate Degree Division for the student competition 2019.

The team at East was initiated by E&T's all star transfer graduate and Cal State Los Angeles graduate in Mechanical Engineering (BS), Mr. Brian Vasquez

The Human Powered Vehicle Challenge competition is an event in which colleges from all over the world come compete in several events that encompasses mechanical engineering. The main event is a race event driven by HUMAN POWER. The team at East was initiated by E&T's all star transfer graduate and Cal State Los Angeles graduate in Mechanical Engineering (BS), Mr. Brian Vasquez. The team has been competing for several years now (on and off) and has shown tremendous spirit.
