How to Start a Student Chapter

The American Academy of Environmental Engineers and Scientists™ recognizes and assists environmental engineering or environmental science student associations. The requirements for recognition and support together with a brief description of the benefits provided follow:

The Academy will recognize environmental engineering and environmental science student associations which:

  • are organized to benefit environmental engineering and environmental science undergraduate and/or graduate students and related engineering and scientific disciplines as determined by the student association;
  • are officially recognized (chartered) by the university where the student association is located;
  • are operated with the guidance of a faculty advisor; and
  • agree to fulfill the responsibilities prescribed by the Academy.

The Academy will provide student chapters which it recognizes with the following benefits:

  • assignment of an BCEE, BCEEM, or BCES to provide practical assistance to a student association;
  • a cloisonne lapel pin for each student member attesting to the Academy's recognition;
  • a subscription to the Environmental Engineer and Scientist for each student member paying $10/year (optional);
  • a copy of the Environmental Engineering and Science Selection and Career Guide for each student member (this is a good job hunting tool);
  • a certificate for the chapter commemorating the Academy's recognition.

The recognition and benefits as described above are equivalent or better than other engineering societies provide their student members.
