EIVA Sponsors Benthic Mapping Programme - 01/02/2013
EIVA, Denmark, has entered into a partnership with the College of Charleston and University of Washington, USA, on the benthic acoustic mapping and survey (BEAMS) programme. This joint journey will centre around knowledge-sharing and training across the Atlantic Ocean, concerned with matters below the water’s surface.
When EIVA learned of the BEAMS programme, the opportunity of establishing a partnership focusing on knowledge-sharing was an obvious ship to board.
The partnership revolves around internships at EIVA’s headquarters in Denmark and an annual 3-day training workshop, taught by EIVA instructors, where the EIVA software suite is put to use at both the College of Charleston and University of Washington. In an industry where knowing your way around a vessel is as important as knowing how to use the software tools at a desk, the training of future professionals very much depends on the level of access to such hands-on training.
The first intern from the BEAMS programme to try her hand at the life as an EIVA employee is Veronica Regan Holton. She graduated from the College of Charleston in May 2012, majoring in geology. To her, the internship was an ideal way of improving her resume as she experienced that candidates who know EIVA’s products are in demand. While working here, she has learned a lot about how the software works as opposed to just following a company procedure. Veronica started with EIVA in December 2012, and the planned five-month internship has already been prolonged, so she will be making Denmark her home for at least another year.Last updated: 19/02/2020
