The wait is over: We are pleased to announce that Prof. Raul Fuentes from the University of Leeds has accepted the call to succeed Univ.-Prof. Dr.-Ing. Martin Ziegler as Head of the Department of Geotechnical Engineering in Civil Engineering and Institute of Foundation Engineering, Soil Mechanics, Rock Mechanics and Hydraulic Engineering at RWTH Aachen University. According to the current status, the "handover of the baton" will take place at the beginning of the winter semester on October 1, 2020, so that Prof. Ziegler can go into well-deserved retirement at the end of September 2020, as planned, after more than 20 years at the helm of the institute.
