July 22, 2013 — Charles Haas, Department Head of Civil, Architectural and Environmental Engineering and LD Betz Professor of Environmental Engineering, has been designated as a Fellow of the Association of Environmental Engineering and Science Professors (AEESP) at the biennial conference during the concluding banquet held in Golden, Colorado on July 16, 2013.
“The Association of Environmental Engineering and Science Professors is unique amongst all engineering disciplines. I truly consider it to be my ‘home’ society,” says Haas. “Having just returned from the biennial meeting, I am reinvigorated by the energy and renewal of the environmental engineering discipline, and am proud to have contributed in a small way to the success of the discipline and the Association.”
Haas is one of an inaugural class of five fellows of this organization, which is comprised of more than a 1,000 faculty in all Environmental Engineering programs in the United States. He was cited for his contributions to research, service to the association and education. Haas is a past board member and treasurer of AEESP. He has pioneered the development of quantitative microbial risk assessment for water, sanitation, air and public health protection, as well as developed innovative methods for analysis and design of disinfection systems.
AEESP is made up of professors in academic programs throughout the world who provide education in the sciences and technologies of environmental protection. To find out more information on AEESP, please visit the official association website.
