The School of Surveying is proud to announce that final year student Thomas Rutter is the recipient of the 2015 Australasian Hydrographic Society (AHS) Education Award. The Award was formally presented to Thomas on 22 June 2015 by the AHS President, Commander Dave Crossman, RNZN during the AHS NZ Region Annual Seminar and AGM, held in Wellington.

Thomas was commended on his research investigating the performance and operation of remotely-operated survey vessels (ROSVs) using multibeam echo sounders (MBES) for nautical charting surveys to national and international standards. Associated research also involved cost and operations benefit analysis to commercial hydrographic survey firms. Thomas recently submitted this research for his SURV470 Professional Project.

The AHS Annual Education Award is open for applications at the start of each year, and typically presented on or near World Hydrography Day (21 June). For more information please visit the AHS website.
