Working with the Industry - ESRI delivers workshops for the NSF-ATE Geospatial Program
Proactive collaboration with the industry is necessary to expose students to geospatial technology. Industry giants ESRI have been working with the BCC Geospatial Center of the CUNY CREST Institute for a long time to enrich student understanding of geospatial technology. The workshops are decked with interactive lectures, demonstrations and hand-on challenges that are designed to inspire and engage students in a rigorous environment consisting of problem solving and analytical tasks. ESRI trained instructors and advocates help us enable these students to be spatially enabled.
