Having accurate knowledge of subsurface/ underground/ buried utilities (pipes/ cables/ drains etc.) is critical for any infrastructure project. The successful detection and mapping of buried utilities involves the combination of several techniques, the results of which are synthesized down to a single interpreted plot. The techniques and methodologies used will primarily depend upon the required outcome for the survey, the site conditions and the type of pipes or cables being targeted.
Subsurface Utility Engineering (SUE) is an upcoming field dealing with procedure and standards for detection and mapping of underground utilities. The workshop comprehensively covers all the aspects related to conducting a successful underground utility detection and mapping project. The workshop also serves as certification program of three levels (trade skill certificate level 1, 2 & 3) leading to certification as ‘SUE Engineer’ with a unique seal to certify utility drawings.
Title of SUE Engineer is granted upon acquiring the necessary professional skills in Subsurface Utility Engineering field through SUE Engineer training program. The program comprises of three levels of training and respective level- end tests conducted by IndSTT followed by the certification and grant of SUE Engineer Seal with distinct serial number for each qualified and certified SUE Engineer. SUE Engineer can function in five different roles:
There is an acute shortage of qualified professionals to supervise the entire process of subsurface utility engineering. This program is an effort to cater to this need and certify eligible personnel as Subsurface Utility Engineer authorised to stamp and sign final SUE drawings. The process of certification leading to Subsurface Utility Engineer will be as under:
After completing above 3 levels, one will become eligible to be certified as subsurface utility engineer, and will be issued a numbered stamp also to be used for drawing certification.
