Master's Thesis Position on Microrobotics and Hybrid Microassembly

Open position for master’s thesis in the Department of Automation and Systems Technology beginning from September or October 2011, for a student who holds a B.Sc. degree and has background in automation, micro- and nanotechnology, mechatronics or other related fields.

The offered work concerns the development of hybrid microassembly system for microcomponents based on the micro-world forces and physical phenomena. The tasks may include one or several of the following: design and development of an automatic microassembly system using mostly off-the-shelf components; experimental study of hybrid microassembly processes; modeling, simulation and experimental validation of certain hybrid microassembly process. The tasks will be closely guided by experienced researchers and in cooperation with other team members. The work is related to several research projects funded by EU, Finnish academy and Industry. The student will have a chance to acquire knowledge and experience in both the scientific aspects of the research topic and direct industrial application of the technology.

The applicant should send materials by email to Dr. Quan Zhou, email (, including curriculum vitae, official transcripts of records in Aalto, and any other supporting documents.

Deadline 25.9.2011
