When selecting a university I came to U of C specifically to enroll in Geomatics. I believe Geomatics is a multi-faceted discipline with a wide sweeping ability to improve our world, a cutting edge source of innovation, and a game changer in the way we understand space and relationships.
As VP External I would purposefully pursue my role by actively networking with companies, professional associations and other student groups to advance our society at the U of C and our emergence as a profession as a whole according to the vision of GESS and the desires of its members by:
- Completing all duties as specified in the constitution to a level of excellence- Investigating the possibility of broadening our role as the premiere Geomatics school in Canada and the world by expanding our access/knowledge of the Alberta Land Surveyors' Association and Alberta Professional Engineers and Geoscientists Association opportunities and resources, as well as investigating the increased involvement with other agencies such as the Alberta Geomatics Group to help serve the needs of specialists in remote sensing, data processing and photogrammetry not so well served by our existing relationships.
- Conducting a feasibility study and if reasonable helping GESS develop an action plan for hosting a Geomatics Conference that covers all disciplines of our faculty not just engineering and surveying.
- Ensuring that the merchandise/homeroom upgrades offered by our sponsorship partners meets the needs and desires of our membership.
My relevant experiences at the U of C include VP External for the Engineering Students Society, past Schulich Engineering Competition Designer, Western Engineering Competition Senior Design Director, International Engineering Competition Volunteer Lead and the Canadian Federation of Engineering Students Congress Chair. Additionally I have served on a handful of charities and represented our student body on both UCEE and SSAF.
Entering my final year of studies with an 80% course load I believe I have the time, the experience and the passion to deliver beyond the requirements of the role.
3rd Year Rep
I am an extremely outgoing and engaging individual who thrives in public speaking and social settings. I go out of my way to personally meet everyone in my year and each of our profs and ta's. I feel that I would be the ideal choice for 3rd year rep as I will proudly represent myself and my peers on behalf of our year and will put in any work necessary in order to make our third year the best that it can be.
To be the 3rd year Rep for the Geomatics Engineering Student Society in the upcoming 2015-2016 school year.
What Will I Do For You?
· Promptly bring any questions or suggestions you might have about the program or GESS to the council and get back to you with an informative response in a timely manner.
· Keep you up to date with the many fun, educational, and professional events GESS organizes throughout the year for us to take advantage of.
· Provide ideas to the council that could improve our experience as students.
· Assertive and outgoing when speaking in public.
· Enthusiastic and reliable.
· Easy to approach.
By voting for me to become your 3rd year rep you will enable me to assist you in becoming more involved in the fun events that we can all benefit from, enhancing our experience as we progress in our lives as engineers!
I would be an excellent Switzerland Commissioner as I am extremely hard working, outgoing, and committed to doing the best job possible. I am planning on attending the 2016 Trip after finishing my third year in Geomatics Engineering and would therefore be an ideal applicant for this position.
Currently a Third Year Geomatics student, who will be participating in the Switzerland trip this summer. I will have the advantage of previously experiencing the trip and can bring that knowledge to next years trip.
Tomorrow (January 29) over 30 companies will be in attendance in MacEwan Hall A/B to meet students and help the wonderful world of Geomatics grow! GESS memberships will be required to attend, but they can be purchased at the door for $20 if you don't already have one. First year engineering students will get in for free.
