Dr. Daniel Oerther, the John A. and Susan Mathes Chair of Environmental Engineering at S&T, was named the 2013 winner of the Value of Certification video contest by the American Academy of Environmental Engineers and Scientists. Certification by the academy is the highest professional recognition of practitioners of environmental engineering. It requires practicing for at least eight years with a P.E. and passing both a written and oral comprehensive examination. In 2013, the academy solicited members to prepare personal video statements about the value of certification in their professional practice. According to academy comments, Oerther’s entry “…perfectly embodied the spirit of being Board Certified as well as his sincere admiration for the Academy and its members. His commitment to excellence in environmental engineering and science practically burst through the screen.”
Using clips from entries, as well as a professional editor, the academy assembled its first-ever promotional video which is available on YouTube.
