Reza Mehran Prize

The prize donor, Dr. Reza Mehran, was a professor of electrical engineering at the Friedberg campus of the THM for many years. He explains his initiative to promote young scientists with his own experiences during his studies in Aachen. At that time, he said, he had received an award that honored very good technical achievements by foreign students. The recognition that he successfully studied in a foreign country under difficult conditions was a strong motivation for his further academic education. - see also press article
