About AEES

Technical Notes


Annual Meeting

Eco Designer Certification





A new society called the "American Ecological Engineering Society" (AEES) was first discussed in 1999 at a workshop on ecological engineering in Columbus, Ohio in May 1999. Fifteen US universities were represented at that meeting. It was agreed at the workshop that ecological engineers throughout North America should pursue the idea of a U.S. society, particularly to begin the process of organizing academic programs and ultimately certification for this new field in North America.
