Abstract

During the past two years, the Penn State Surveying Program has advanced both curriculum and hardware/software combinations for its students. This paper discusses the multifaceted approach taken to improve retention and enhance the students' academic experience. Included in this discussion are the incorporation of GPS and field-to-finish software into the first-year courses; the development and use of remote sensing and softcopy photogrammetry software in a sequence of remote sensing, photogrammetry, and GIS courses; and the use of advanced instructional development tools in all courses. This paper also presents new initiatives being made to expand recruitment of new students and increase enrollment.
