Master's Thesis Position

Mining and minerals engineering is one of the main research application areas of the Control engineering group. Currently our research includes the development of rapid on-line ore analysis methods. In addition to the mineral and elemental contents, the petrophysical properties are important when characterizing the ore. The measurements are applied to ore exploration, planning of the excavation and controlling of the concentration process.

We are looking for an electrical engineering oriented and motivated master’s thesis worker for planning and realizing a susceptibility measurement system for automatic drillcore analysis. The system consists of a measuring coil and a suitable circuitry to measure the inductance of the coil. We expect a good knowledge of basic electrical circuits (e.g. basic courses in electrical engineering) and good practical skills in electronics (welding etc.). In addition, studies or other knowledge in geophysics or geology are seen as an advantage.

For the application, please email the following documents (in Finnish or in English) attached to the email:

cover letter
curriculum vitae
transcripts of records
other supporting documents e.g. letters of recommendation

The applications should be sent no later than on Wednesday, February 28 February by email to Dr. Olli Haavisto (, who also answers to any questions related to the position.'''

The Department of Automation and Systems Technology is situated in Otaniemi campus of Aalto University, TUAS-building, Otaniementie 17, Espoo.
