The Aachen Engineering Award is an honor jointly awarded by RWTH Aachen and the City of Aachen. The award will be annually presented to an individual who has made a significant contribution to the positive perception and/or further development of engineering with his or her life’s work.
Science presented in uncommon ways at an uncommon time - this is the idea behind the event „5 vor 12“. The goal of this even is to present science in an entertaining way that is both understandable and tangible for all generations. The event includes presentations, film screenings, and cabaret and musical components.
