Association of Environmental & Engineering Geologists (AEG)

The Association of Environmental & Engineering Geologists (AEG) contributes to its members’ professional success and the public welfare by providing leadership, advocacy, and applied research in environmental and engineering geology. The UMKC chapter of AEG strives to encourage students to get involved in the national AEG organization by learning about new developments in the environmental and engineering geology field and by meeting professionals currently working in this field.

Networking with professionals, former alumni, and professors has given us the opportunity to host speaker series on various topics related to geology, environmental science, engineering, and more.

Students may apply to join AEG during a designated timeframe each semester. Application materials and deadlines will be provided at the beginning of each semester. For more information about the requirements to join a, please see the national headquarters’ website or contact our chapter faculty advisor, Dr. Jejung Lee at leej@umkc.edu.
