Gurgaon: Four deaf students of the Noida Deaf Society have joined COWI India as Junior Associates, after completing a photogrammetric training course. In August, the five students of the Noida Deaf Society (NDS) completed their training course at the COWI India training school at Gurgaon, and four of them have since joined the Mapping Department of COWI India as junior associates.

The training taught the students how to use photogrammetry equipment, and how to work adeptly in the fields of photogrammetry, GIS and remote sensing.

“After the training programme ended in August, four of the five students have now joined COWI India. The four students are all doing well in understanding the technical specifications of projects and the finer aspects of the software being used,” says Krishna Naithani, Technical Advisor of CIL Mapping.
