Inspiring the Next Generation
LandScope’s Principal of Hydrographic and Oceanographic Services, Category A IHO-accredited hydrographic surveyor James Willcock, shared his experience and expertise with some lucky undergraduates from the Land & Hydrographic Surveying masters course at the University of Glasgow last week.
Students were given the opportunity to take a trip aboard s.v.Investigator up the River Clyde and acquire bathymetric data using our market-leading survey equipment. They were then helped to understand the associated rigorous quality control measures needed to ensure technical certainty.
LandScope have provided this training for Glasgow University for a number of years now. Students may go on from this day to take up a work placement at LandScope, often leading to full time employment.
