Starting in January 2017, Dr. Daniel Oerther, professor of civil, architectural, and environmental engineering, will begin his second, three-year term as the treasurer of the American Academy of Environmental Engineers and Scientists (AAEES).
The nearly 3,000 members of AAEES are licensed professional engineers who have received additional training and testing to become board certified. As leaders in the environmental engineering profession, AAEES is responsible for accreditation of degree programs at universities and advising federal, state and local governments.
Oerther’s duties will include planning and fiscal management of an annual budget of approximately $1 million and a staff of six full-time employees located in Washington, D.C. In 2011, Dr. Joel Burken, Curators’ Distinguished Professor and chair of civil, architectural and environmental engineering at S&T, was awarded board certification.
