SDSM& T LIAISON WITH EROS DATA CENTER LOCATED ON CAMPUS/ RECRUITING TECH STUDENTS
Gail Schmidt has relocated from the EROS Data Center to the SDSM& T campus to serve as a liaison between the two institutions. Her presence on campus underscores the partnership being developed between SDSM& T and the EROS Data Center.
As part of her liaison responsibilities, Schmidt is recruiting South Dakota Tech students for full- time positions with the EROS Data Center and for summer internships. Hughes STX, the government contractor which operates the EROS Data Center, will be hiring approximately 100 individuals during the next year to work on the LANDSAT and Mission to Planet Earth programs. EROS Data Center, located east of Sioux Falls, processes imagery from the LANDSAT satellite and is the largest repository of satellite data in the nation.
“ The relationships which we are building with the EROS Data Center provide some exciting opportunities for SDSM& T and illustrate South Dakota Tech’s national reputation as an outstanding engineering and science institution. We are pleased to have Gail Schmidt on campus as we continue to develop partnerships with the LANDSAT and Mission to Planet Earth programs,” said SDSM& T President Richard Gowen.
Schmidt indicated she has already referred three Tech students to EROS and all three have received offers of employment. Schmidt is recruiting prospective employees or interns who have a strong computer science background, although a major in computer science is not required. Students who are interested in applying for employment or an internship with the EROS Data Center can contact Gail Schmidt at 394- 2292 or Room 2292, Institute of Atmospheric Sciences.
Gail Schmidt is a native of Rapid City and also a graduate of SDSM& T.
