Dennis Corporation recently assisted in preparing the University of South Carolina’s Survey Team for this year’s Carolina’s Conference Surveying Competition sponsored by the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE). Survey Team members included Greg Moore, Jamar Adams, Nate Tipora, and Daniel Baker, all of the Walter E. Rowe student chapter of the American Society of Civil Engineers at the University of South Carolina.
Carolina’s Conference is an annual event in which ASCE student chapter teams from the top engineering schools throughout South Carolina, North Carolina and Georgia, compete in thirteen categories of competitions. The competitions include: Balsawood Bridge, Concrete Canoe, Construction Management, Earthquake, Environmental, Mead Paper, Mystery, Quiz Bowl, Service, Steel Bridge, Surveying, T-Shirt Design, and Tug-of-War.
Dennis Corporation’s Kyle Titus, EIT, Assistant Surveying Manager, and Luke Henderson, Survey Crew Chief, worked diligently with the team in the classroom and field, teaching standard surveying methods, procedures and calculations. The team was able to successfully employ the skills they learned from working with Dennis Corporation personnel to lead their team in winning second place in Surveying at this year’s Carolina’s Conference.
“Being able to utilize the experience we’ve learned from Dennis Corporation and its employees, and apply it to the Surveying Competition enabled us to be a strong competitor in this event,” said Team Captain Greg Moore
