Positioning education

The commonly asked question “How are you?” has changed during the last decade to “Where are you?”

Education and position are key...

Knowledge of your loction is taken for granted these days. Kids grow up with this knowledge, without thinking about it. However, locating yourself with a smart phone & using a precision position measurement system are two different things!

Education Program (EU)

Getting educated

Topcon Positioning Group have long recognised the importance to supply educational institutions with the most advanced positioning equipment currently available. In 2006, Topcon Europe Positioning started an initiative to provide establishments with affordable equipment to enable them to be as aware as possible with the latest positioning technologies, and the Topcon Educational Partnership Program (EPP) was born.

This is important as it underlines that our EPP is not a price driven business rather a desire and necessity to enable students and graduates to start their careers with a head start. Of course, it also helps colleges and universities who find it very difficult to pay full price for today's high-end surveying equipment.

The program then supplies these institutions with state-of-the art positioning solutions at educational discount prices. Our European retail companies and dealer network takes care of the equipment sales and can then provide top class training at agreed rates.

We are currently offering a number of educational packages incorporating our top of the range GNSS and optical positioning products and software. Please click here to view the packages that are currently available.

If you would like to discuss any aspect of the Educational Partnership Program with us, please don't hesitate to get into contact with us using the links at the top of the page.
