Who We Are

The Association of Environmental Engineers and Scientists, AEES, is a student-run organization based at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, Georgia. Many undergraduate and graduate students are involved in our professional and social events. Our parent organizations are the Georgia Association of Water Professionals (GAWP), the Water Environment Federation (WEF) and the American Water Works Association (AWWA). We are also an official student chapter of AWWA.

Our Goals

Our organization’s main goal is to improve the overall educational experience of the students in our department. We aim to provide a professional and social network to environmental engineering and science students at Georgia Tech. We provide professional development services to our students, act as a communication channel between students and faculty, provide assistance to students attending conferences, and work to maintain a high quality of student life. AEES also provides a link between students and their potential employers.

What We Do

Our members are undergraduate and graduate students studying and researching topics within environmental engineering and science, including air quality, bioremediation, subsurface contaminant transport, and physicochemical processes associated with water and wastewater treatment. Throughout the year, we host a variety of professional, social, and service events. Professional events include industry-sponsored lunches, a panel discussion, a career fair, and a research symposium. Check out our Calendar page and Facebook page for upcoming events.
