You might think working in the GIS lab is all about advanced technology and maps. But a closer look shows that there is much more to be gained in the lab beyond face value. Youssef Guedira is currently studying at WC as a junior from Al Akhawayn University in Morocco. This Engineering student was quick to jump on an opportunity to work at the lab.
“WC was the highest ranked institution among the list of partnerships my university has with American institutions. While working on my computer one night, I saw an email form Stew Bruce calling for application to work for the GIS lab. I had a web development internship during the summer of 2011 and my handling of HTML started in 8th grade. I thought that I may be helpful and that it would be an interesting experience. So, I emailed Stew back, and we set a meeting.”
