The Robert Piloty Prize has been awarded since 2016. It continues the tradition of the Alwin Walther Medal of TU Darmstadt, which was awarded jointly by the Departments of Computer Science and Mathematics.

The broadening of the profile with respect to Electrical Engineering and Information Technology comes with a change of the denomination of the price. In the sense of a technical reference to the work of Robert Piloty, laureates with scientific achievements in the field of computer engineering are preferably be considered in the field of electrical engineering and information technology. In mathematics, laureates are preferably be considered with scientific achievements in the field of applied mathematics.
