Teach using the latest technologies

Educational discounts for positioning systems

Prepare your students for a future in position measurement

Using a sophisticated position-measurement system requires a lot more skill and equipment than “locating” yourself using a smartphone. Each educational package incorporates our top-of-the-range GNSS and optical-positioning products and software.

This program is not price-driven. Instead, it represents our commitment to giving students and graduates a head start. The program also helps colleges and universities that find it difficult to pay full price for today’s high-end surveying equipment.

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.

Educational Positioning Packages

Educational Positioning Packages

Our Educational Positioning Packages (EPP) programs are available in three categories: Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS), optical/survey, and software.

GNSS

Our GNSS receivers (similar to GPS) can pick up any available satellite positioning signal. The educational packages include training for base station and rover sets, GNSS network rovers, and GNSS network-reference stations.

You can use these products in a variety of applications, including surveying, mapping, GIS, archeology, forensics, construction, agriculture, and forestry. We use the same modular core components and tailor them for each application. Each GNSS package is configured for the educational setting.

Optical / Survey

Today surveyors have an incredible array of tools to boost efficiency, accuracy, and profitability. We leverage our long history in optical and surveying technologies, including optical instruments, through-the-lens technology, robotics, matrix detection, hybrid technology, and video feeds to create educational packages for each of these technologies.

Software

Our software packages include solutions for the field, the office, and online.

Field software enables surveyors to perform land surveys and contractors to collect data points, stake out road and site projects, and lay out building components, all using total stations, levels, and/or GNSS receivers.

Office software processes and synchronizes field and design data for surveying and grading applications, among other capabilities.

Online solutions enable you to manage your field and office data in the cloud. You can track your assets, communicate with everyone involved in the course, and provide live support for your students, all online.

The software packages are a natural complement to all our GNSS and optical/survey packages available in the program.

Educational institutions can order up to three EPP sets. If you need more, please contact us.
