MANY SURVEYORS ENJOY MASTERING MULTIPLE DISCIPLINES within the surveying profession. For Michael John Wyatt, his disciplines include hydrographic survey and inspection, land survey, and heavy equipment navigation systems. His approach comes in part from being with a prominent multi-discipline firm in the region, JF Brennan, with diverse services that have had John working projects all over the country.
John received a BS in surveying engineering from Michigan Tech in Houghton, MI. He has been with Brennan for just over eight years, and in that time Brennan has grown significantly and has continued to promote new technology and innovation. John says, “I oversee and work with a talented group of professionals who are all dedicated to bringing innovative, efficient, and accurate survey methods to our clients. It amazes me how fast the younger surveyors pick up on and excel with our survey systems. I feel like what took me years to figure out takes them weeks.” His current work interests involve developing a user-friendly interactive 3D product for clients, multibeam sonar as a structural inspection tool, and modeling submerged vertical surfaces.
