A student team from the School of Electrical Engineering has entered second place in the student design competition. Project of the Aalto team was kicked off as part of the Department of Radio Science and Engineering's Antennas workshop.

Six teams from together 47 teams were selected to the semifinals according to the preliminary competitive plan. Final round was held in Puerto Rico, USA starting 26 June. The winners of the competition were chosen on the basis of an article, a video and the presentation held in conference.

Team Aalto's members Mikko Leino, BSc (Tech.) and Henri Partanen, BSc (Tech.), who are students in the Master's Programme in Nanotechnology and Radio Engineering, as well as Niko Lindvall and Rasmus Luomaniemi, who are students in the Bachelor's Programme in Electronics and Electrical Engineering were happy of a great experience.

‘We were able to take advantage of lessons learned from the courses in practice. In addition, we looked at other teams participated in the competition and their works as well as we were able to establish academic contacts’, tells Rasmus.

Student teams from the School of Electrical Engineering have fared extremely well in the annual competition. This was Aalto's third consecutive semi-final place. In previous years, Aalto's teams have place second and third in the final.

'This is telling of out extremely high calibre and especially of our exceptional students from one year to the next. Success in past years has motivated new students to aim for even better success,' university lecturer Jari Holopainen the teacher in charge of the Antennas workshop explains.

The theme of the competition is linked to the current and significant revolution in the development of the Internet of Things. The team developed a collecting device that receives radio waves from its surrounding area and converts the radio wave's energy to direct current power. The realisation is excellent and its performance is even better than a few similar commercial solutions.

Microtechnology and nanotechnology and the development of related sensors are key focus areas in the school's research. Professor Ville Viikari, who is the team's mentor and the other teacher in charge of the Antennas workshop, heads research on wireless sensors.
