- Ausbildung und Beruf
Hans Albert Einstein besuchte die Grundschule in Zürich und begann sein Studium der Ingenieurwissenschaften an der ETH Zürich. Hier erlangte er 1926 sein Diplom und 1936 seinen Doktortitel.
Im Jahre 1927 heiratete er Frieda Knecht, Lehrerin für Deutsch und Literatur an der ETH Zürich. Aus dieser Ehe gingen die Kinder Bernhard Caesar Einstein (19302008) und Klaus Einstein (19321938) hervor. Klaus Einstein starb kurz nach der Emigration in die USA an Diphtherie. Die Tochter Evelyn (19412011) wurde adoptiert. Hans Albert arbeitete unmittelbar nach seinem Diplom als Ingenieur für Stahlbau in Dortmund.
Wie sein Bruder Eduard litt insbesondere auch Hans Albert sehr unter der Trennung der Eltern, nach der die Söhne bei der Mutter in der Schweiz lebten. Der Vater besuchte sie jedoch weiterhin. Das Verhältnis zum Vater galt lange als gestört, verbesserte sich aber im Lauf der Zeit.

En 1988, la Sociedad Estadounidense de Ingenieros Civiles (ASCE) instituyó el premio Hans Albert Einstein Award como reconocimiento a los logros destacados en control de erosión, sedimentación y desarrollo de acueductos. Específicamente, fue reconocido por el desarrollo de la estructura de control del río antiguo en la zona del río Misisipi. La obra, llamada Low Sill, de 152 metros de largo y 21 metros de alto.

- Personal life
Hans E. Einstein was the foremost authority on the lung disease Valley Fever. He lived in Bakersfield, California, USA. He was related to Albert Einstein: Hans's grandfather and Albert were first cousins.
Einstein was born in Berlin, the son of Josefa Spiero Einstein Warburg and Dr. Fritz Einstein. He spent his childhood in Hamburg, Germany as Nazism gradually took hold. His parents were Quakers, but of Jewish origin. A year after Hitler took power in 1934, his mother moved Einstein and his sister to the Netherlands, leaving his father behind. He finished high school at Eerde, a boarding school in the Netherlands at age 16 and moved to the United States as an exchange student. He attended Furman
Parents: Dr. Fritz Einstein and Josefa Spiero Einstein Warburg Sister: Heilwig Einstein Odlivak of NY, NY;, Half-sister, Christina Mills of London, GB; Half-brother: Frank Einstein of Nashville, TN, USA; Half-sister: Iris Warburg; step-sister: Camilla England of Santa Fe, NM, USA. 1. Married Mary Elizabeth Lake in 1943. Three daughters: Emily Ann Einstein, Paula Lynn Einstein, and Elizabeth Eve Einstein. 2. Married Merle Ryden in 1969. One step-daughter: Sheryl Tynes. 3.

- Life and Career
Hans Albert Einstein was born in Bern, Switzerland, where his father worked as a clerk in the patent office. His father was of German-Jewish descent and his mother Serbian. His younger brother, Eduard Einstein, was born in 1910 and died in 1965. The fate of his older sister, Lieserl Einstein, Albert Einstein's and Mileva Marić's first child, is unknown. Their parents divorced in 1919 after living apart for five years. In 1927 he married Frieda Knecht. Albert Einstein disapproved of Frieda much as his parents had of Mileva. Hans Albert and Frieda had five children — Bernhard Caesar (1930–2008) was a physicist, and engineer. Klaus Martin (1932-1938) died of diphtheria. Two subsequent boys died several days after their birth. They adopted a daughter, Evelyn(1941–2011), soon after her birth. Frieda died in 1958, and Hans Albert later married Elizabeth Roboz (1904-1995). Hans Albert followed his father's footsteps and studied at ETH, the Swiss Federal Institute of technology, in Zurich,...
In tribute to Einstein's lifelong contributions to the field, his former graduate students published a book of research in his honor in 1972, Sedimentation: Symposium to Honor Professor H.A. Einstein. The University of California also awarded him the title Professor of Hydraulic Engineering, Emeritus In 1988, the American Society of Civil Engineers created the Hans Albert Einstein Awardto recognize outstanding achievements in erosion control, sedimentation and/or waterway development.
