AEES Panel Discussion - November 13th @4:30pm
As you all know, the annual panel discussion is our biggest event of the fall. This year, we’ve invited experts to discuss agricultural practices and its impact on the environment. It is going to be a lively and very interesting debate, and we really want to have strong attendance. Plus, we’ll have yummy hors d’oeuvres afterwards!

 

Call for leaders!

Outstanding Student Nominations

The Association of Environmental Engineers and Scientists (AEES) is calling for nominations for Georgia Tech’s most outstanding candidates across all academic levels in environmental engineering. Each year AEES recognizes three outstanding students in environmental engineering: one Bachelors student, one Masters student, and one Doctoral candidate. Award criteria include various areas such as class performance, service activities, involvement in the environmental engineering program and associated events, professional activities, and participation in teaching and research. Students must be currently enrolled for the Fall semester and undergraduates should have completed at least 60% of the necessary credit hours for graduation. Bachelor degree candidates may be majoring in civil engineering with a focus in the environment.

If you know someone who qualifies for this prestigious award, please give him or her your nomination. Both students and professors can make a nomination and one individual may make multiple nominations. Students may also nominate themselves!  Award winners will be publicly announced at the annual Spring Symposium hosted by AEES. Each winner will receive a monetary scholarship and an award certificate.

Please submit award nominations via email (aeessymposium@gmail.com) by Friday, November 21. Include the nominee’s name and award for which they are being nominated (i.e. Best Bachelors student, Best Masters student, or Best Ph.D. student).

Last events of the semester

Here at AEES, we have two events planned to help you take your mind off those end-of-semester troubles:

 

Last AEES meeting of the year:

Thursday, April 24, 11-12, Mason Room 2117. Free lunch!

We have a GREAT speaker lined up for this week. His name is Alex Levy and he is a Senior Ecologist for Arcadis. He has a background in landscape architecture and lots of experience with streams and aquatic ecosystems, and in working with engineered solutions for terrestrial and aquatic habitat connectivity. So please, come out, take a break from studying to refresh your brain and eat some free lunch!

 

AEES Spring Picnic

Wednesday, 4-6pm Biotech (Ford ES&T) Quad. Free dinner!

Another chance for free food and some stress relief. Please come by to spend some time with your favorite professors and friends, and enjoy free dinner on us. Bring a frisbee, soccer ball, or hacky sack if you have one! Hope to see you there!
