Otaniemi Tours @ Aalto University Undergraduate Center | Espoo | Finland

Starting point is Aalto University Undergraduate Center Aalto-lecture hall. You have been divided into groups of 20, in which you get to visit around three of the following checkpoints:

Department of Neuroscience and Biomedical Engineering (NBE) aims at understanding of system-level dynamic functions of the human brain, mind and body. The research, enabled by state-of-the-art technology and computational methods, leads to discoveries and technological breakthroughs that contribute to health and wellbeing.

AMI Centre maintains a research-dedicated 3T-MRI scanner, develops and maintains the related infrastructure and offers services to multiple research teams. Typical measurements at AMI Centre include functional and structural brain imaging or diffusion tensor imaging. In addition, AMI Centre develops new methods and applications of MRI technology.

Low Temperature Laboratory (LTL) is one of the world centres in ultra low temperature physics and technology. The leading position is based on vigorous in-house development and construction of sub-mK refrigerators. In 2000, the laboratory reached the present low temperature world record of 0.000 000 000 1 K.

VTT MIKES Centre for Metrology and Accreditation is specialised in measurement science and technology. As the National Metrology Institute of Finland, MIKES is responsible for the implementation and development of the national measurement standards system and realisation of the SI units in Finland. MIKES also performs high-level metrological research and develops measuring applications in partnership with industry.

The Aalto University Nanomicroscopy Center (NMC) provides a high resolution microscopy to researchers, who come to work and collaborate using these high quality equipment. The instruments include the only sub-Ångström transmission electron microscope (TEM) in Finland, a liquid helium cooled cryo-TEM, cryo scanning tunneling microscopes (STM), scanning electron microscopes (SEM), atomic force microcopes (AFM), and X-ray scattering equipment

Micronova is Finland’s National Research Infrastructure for micro- and nanotechnology, jointly run by VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland and Aalto University. Their mission is to develop innovative, enabling technologies, and to apply these in practical micro- and nanosystems. Applications developed at Micronova include microelectromechanical systems (MEMS), optical and wireless sensors, millimeter-wave devices, photonics systems, biosensors, microfluidics, nanoelectronic and quantum devices, radiation detectors and instruments for space technology.

Aalto University Student Union (AYY) Main Office is a 15 000 members strong student organization. AYY is a self-governing community subject to public law and its status is defined in the Finnish student union act. The Student Union’s central office is located in it’s own building at Otakaari 11

The Polytechnical Students’ Museum in Espoo’s Otaniemi showcases the funniest and cleverest moments provided by polytechnic students. The museum highlights the students of the Helsinki University of Technology, presenting polytechnic symbols, life and activities – not to mention the most legendary tricks pulled by the polytechnic students.
