14. A job named SUE
from The American Surveyor
From Aug. 6
: For the last few decades, Subsurface Utility Engineering has elevated the architecture, engineering, and construction industries in accuracy and quality by promoting greater knowledge and care of underground assets. In fact, a Penn State University study revealed that every dollar spent investing in the SUE process brings a return of $22.21. While SUE as a discipline has propelled the industry forward, the terminology — subsurface utility "engineering" — has caused confusion and division among engineers, surveyors, geophysicists, designers, and owners involved in the planning phases of development projects.
