ASCE UESI Surveying Competition

About the Competition

The ASCE UESI Surveying Competition’s educational and professional goals include a recognition of the importance of basic surveying principles to all civil engineering projects. Students will be required to use standard field and office equipment and procedures to solve common problems encountered in industry. A clear understanding of and ability to apply basic surveying principles will assist the graduate civil engineer in communicating and working with the surveying professionals on the job site and during the design process.

Rules and RFIs

The ASCE UESI Surveying Competition virtual rules describe two tasks: a topographic mapping project and differential and profile leveling with engineering design. Student teams should read these rules thoroughly and seek clarifications as necessary.

The competition provides a “Requests for Information (RFI)” period so that student teams can ask questions about the rules. See the rules document for where and when to send RFIs as well as how to access the responses.
