The Antennas and Propagation group of Aalto University School of Electrical Engineering is looking for a highly motivated and talented Doctoral Candidate to join their research work.

The fifth-generation (5G) cellular wireless will be ready before/around year 2020. The 5G cellular enables diverse new concepts of connected services in the society, one of which is a smart city. The smart city ensures ubiquitous connectivity through the 5G cellular to facilitate efficient resource use, including electricity, heat and water. In the development of smart cities, however, seeking both the energy efficiency and 5G cellular coverage may have conflicting implications to each other.

The doctoral study therefore tackles this problem by:

  • Experimentally studying the 5G cellular radio coverage inside energy efficient buildings
  • Designing connected energy-efficient buildings together with building material vendors and a city authority, and finally
  • Devising novel measures for ensuring the cellular coverage in smart buildings
