Herbert Riehl Memorial Award

Named in memory of the founder, the department offers the Herbert Riehl Memorial Award annually to a graduate student who submits the best technical manuscript for publication in referred literature during the previous 18-month period. The student can be either a current M.S. candidate or in the Ph.D. program for less than one year. Students in the Ph.D. program must have obtained their M.S. from the department. Candidates are nominated by a department faculty member, and a committee of three faculty members makes the final decision. Generous donations from alumni and friends of the department make this award possible.Herbert Riehl
