Honors Awarded by RWTH and the City of Aachen

 

Every year at the Coronation Hall at Aachen City Hall, RWTH and the City of Aachen present the Aachen Engineering Award to an individual whose lifework has made a significant contribution to the positive perception and/or further development of engineering.

The honorees have left a recognizable, technical "footprint" – whether through innovations or developments, by pursuing special business models, by successfully managing important technical companies, or other technical activities with social relevance.

However, the personal role model function of the award winners, which they assume for the younger generation (especially for students), also plays a decisive role.
