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 below.

The Academy will recognize environmental engineering and environmental science student chapters that:

  • 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 chapter;
  • are officially recognized (chartered) by the university where the student chapter 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 chapter;
  • a digital subscription to the Environmental Engineer and Scientist for each student member
  • a certificate for the chapter commemorating the Academy's recognition; and
  • assistance from the Academy in building a program of support for the student chapter that includes career guidance, materials and information about current topics in environmental engineering and science, presentations on campus, field trips to working sites, and other benefits and activities that are developed in response to student interest.

If you do not have a Student Chapter at your school or university, you may still become a Student Member.  Click here for more information.

How to Start a Student Chapter

AAEES Student Chapters are easy to form, especially if you have a group of students who have already formed an environmental society on your campus. With everything that is going on nationally and globally, this is a great time to form a chapter and get plugged into the environmental profession at an early point in your career. Here is an outline of the four easy steps you can take to form a student chapter:

  • Gather a list of undergraduate and/or graduate students majoring in Environmental Engineering (or related disciplines) of Environmental Science (or related disciplines) and related sciences who want to join AAEES and form a Student Chapter.
  • Find a Faculty Advisor who is willing to provide guidance.
  • Obtain approval from your university or college to form an AAEES Student Chapter. Your faculty advisor can help with this. Usually, this involves approval at the departmental level, but each school has its own requirements.
  • Fill out and submit the forms in the Student Chapter Package, one of which affirms certain responsibilities you will have as a chapter.
