CHARLIE B. AYCOCK, III replied to Jeffrey A. Koester's discussion Did education requirements hurt our profession?
"Wow, I thought we had problems here. I worked for a large construction company in the 70's for a couple of years. I think that was the only company that ever gave me a raise I didn't ask for. I was on the payroll as an engineer but as you…"

CHARLIE B. AYCOCK, III replied to Octavian Turlea's discussion Is a degree actually worth it?
"Well, yes & no. You could go on to get a PHD in something like geodetic science. You could also get a dual degree. There are a number of surveyors out there that are a member of the Bar & practice law."

"Paul makes some really good points. There is drainage design, then there is drainage design! My first experience with it was when it meant getting the water to the ocean by the most direct & economical route.  Then along came FEMA &…"

CHARLIE B. AYCOCK, III replied to Octavian Turlea's discussion Is a degree actually worth it?
"Octavian, I am not sure how to equate the education you already have to the system I am familiar with here. The biggest hurtle for us is a BS degree. Once you have that, the only thing that limits how far you can go is your ability. It does not have…"

"I worked briefly for the SC State DNR as a surveyor out of the engineering office. I would use what works for you. Different strokes for different folks. I had the Carlson full Civil Suite. Mr. Carlson came to our office & I talked to him in…"

"AGREED, I thought I said that. My brother is a registered Civil Engineer in Ga. & 3 other States. Yes, the regs. are State Specific. I have an Engineering degree as a matter of fact but it is a technical degree. They now let you take the PE exam…"

CHARLIE B. AYCOCK, III replied to Octavian Turlea's discussion Is a degree actually worth it?
"Education is always worth the effort, it is unfortunately, expensive these days.  Here, in the US, the thing that mainly separated the profession of surveying from a tradesman such as a party chief or a layout man was knowledge of boundary law…"

CHARLIE B. AYCOCK, III replied to mashaka ally mwageni's discussion FLOOD ANALYSIS
"Software is a tool, it is not a replacement for knowing what you are doing. That is normally the job of a civil engineer, which I am not. I have, in my younger days, done a lot of drainage design but only under the supervision of a licensed Civil…"

CHARLIE B. AYCOCK, III replied to Jeffrey A. Koester's discussion Did education requirements hurt our profession?
"Somebody most of us know once said, "we have raised a generation of button pushers". Technology is a tool, it dosen't replace knowledge. People are doing things with computers that have no clue what they are doing."

"Wow! I don't know how much advice I am qualified to give but I have some thoughts, Moving to a different country is a big step. I would proceed with much caution. I was married to a French Canadian once. She decided she didn't like me…"

CHARLIE B. AYCOCK, III replied to Jeffrey A. Koester's discussion Did education requirements hurt our profession?
"Well, there isn't anything you can do about it unless you are registered & run a business, other than refusing to accept employment for less than you think you are worth. If we don't get paid enough, you can't tell it by the fees…"

CHARLIE B. AYCOCK, III replied to Jeffrey A. Koester's discussion Did education requirements hurt our profession?
"I am not going to pretend there are no problems. There are always problems. Success depends on what you set as a goal. If I wanted to be an engineer, I would be an engineer, I have an engineering degree. I like being a surveyor better. No doubt the…"

"If you remember the old adage, "Rome wasn't built in a day". Today's surveying is every bit as technical & complicated as engineering. We have to deal with GPS, different datums & projections & we have to know…"

Hi Charlie, I just want you to know ,I have the deepest respect for you and got you back anytime.You and surveyors like us are a dying Breed that the world will never see again after we are gone.People today instead trying to find the problem and fixing it, their first solution is to use a computer to adjust everything,this means there is not a thing that is correct it's just adjusted,like you said a 90 is a 90 and a 100 is a 100 that what i was trying to tell him,make sure you two are on the same page with Angles and Dist. then go from there. No Charlie your are the kind of surveyor i have work for my whole life, be it one person or a large company and i had some good teachers.Your opinion means a lot to me

always.

And thanks for being a friend,billy
