28.06.2023 - Young Engineers Award

The Baden-Württemberg Chamber of Engineers has been awarding the "Young Engineers Award", a sponsorship prize for students, since 2022. This offers graduates of civil engineering at Baden-Württemberg universities and colleges the opportunity to make their theses accessible to a broad public and is intended to create awareness of "the societal, cultural and social relevance of civil engineering services, the contribution of civil engineers to science and research as well as building culture and the art of civil engineering."


We are very pleased that this year's prize (in the category Master's thesis, research) went to our employee Mr. Luis Mugele for his outstanding Master's thesis entitled "Numerical considerations on the influence of the in-situ soil by the production of vibratory tamping columns" and congratulate him warmly.

We wish Mr. M.Sc. Mugele every success and all the best for his future research work.
