Dr. Daniel Oerther, professor of civil, architectural and environmental engineering, recently received two honors.
Oerther was elevated as a Diplomate of the American Academy of Sanitarians (D.AAS). Diplomate status recognizes “leadership and outstanding competence among credentialed environmental health practitioners.”
Since its creation in 1956, fewer than 750 environmental health practitioners have been recognized with Diplomate status. Oerther will use his elevated status to support his teaching of environmental health engineering at Missouri S&T and his ongoing community-based participatory research promoting food safety, nutrition and food security to prevent childhood stunting in developing communities.
Oerther also has been registered as a chartered environmentalist by the Society for the Environment of the United Kingdom. Chartered environmentalist, identified through the regulated use of the post nominal CEnv, represents knowledgeable, experienced, competent and committed environmental professionals.
An additional protected title in the UK is registered environmental technician (REnvTech). Oerther achieved his registration through examination by a panel of chartered environmentalist of the UK Society of Environmental Engineers. The standard for obtaining the designation of CEnv includes established proven knowledge, experience, and commitment to professional standards of professional discipline.
Oerther sought registration as a CEnv to support his partnerships with firms in the UK and the British Overseas Territories, including within the Caribbean.
