Heitfeld Award


Every year, the Professor Dr. Karl-Heinrich Heitfeld Foundation honours Master's graduates and doctorates of the Faculty of Georesources and Materials Engineering at RWTH Aachen University for outstanding achievements. The foundation was established in 1995 by Heitfeld and his wife. Professor Heitfeld was appointed to RWTH Aachen University in 1970 as professor of engineering geology and hydrogeology and retired in March 1990 after 20 years of active involvement in the development of engineering geology in Germany.
