About The Chapter

The St. Louis Chapter strives to continually educate and connect professionals, students, and the public in a unique region that encompasses karst, alluvial, glacial, and seismically actives areas as well as active and historical mining. In many places these topics overlap and interact with each other creating unique and varied engineering and environmental situations.

Students and Educators

The St. Louis Chapter works with educators and students in Missouri and Illinois. If you are interested in having a professional speak in the classroom (any age group) or know of a student interested in job shadowing, please do not hesitate to contact any of the officers. Currently, we have one Student Chapter in our Section at Missouri University of Science & Technology (Formerly University of Missouri-Rolla). For more information on the Chapter, please visit their page. (Click link below to webpage) We encourage students at other universities within the St. Louis Chapter to start your own Student Chapter. Our officers would be pleased to meet with you and your fellow students to get you started!
