Association of Environmental Engineering and Science Professors (AEESP) is made up of professors in academic programs throughout the world who provide education in the sciences and technologies of environmental protection. The headquarters are located in Washington, DC.


AEESP was founded in 1963[1] as the American Association of Professors of Sanitary Engineering (AAPSE) and later as the Association of Environmental Engineering Professors (AEEP).


The more than 700 members of AEESP include faculty, students, and affiliates in the fields of environmental engineering and environmental engineering science.


The Association assists its members in improving education and research programs, encourages undergraduate and graduate education,[2] and serves the profession by providing information to government agencies and the public.[3] Direct services provided to members include publication of the journal, Environmental Engineering Science,[4] hosting biennial research and education conferences,[5] coordinating recognition of excellence in research, teaching, and service,[6][7][8] and providing a forum for the exchange of information relevant to the field including newsletters, online media, workshops, and lectures.[9]


Through the AEESP Foundation, recognition of members include: doctoral dissertation and MS thesis awards; educator and educational content awards; global engagement, research, and publication awards; and the Perry L. McCarty Founders Award. In collaboration with sister organizations, the AEESP recognizes outstanding students, outstanding teaching, and outstanding integration of research, teaching, and the practice of environmental engineering.
