SpaceMaster is a Erasmus Mundus Master's Degree Program in Space Science and Technology that is being served by 6 top European universities. More administrative information about the whole program including instructions for perspective students can be found at http://www.spacemaster.eu.
This web site is the local SpaceMaster's web page designed to give information about the SpaceMaster's 2nd year studies at the Department of Automation and Systems Technology at Aalto University School of Electrical Engineering (Aalto ELEC).
Aalto University School of Electrical Engineering was formerly known as a faculty in Helsinki University of Technology (TKK). The new name has been active since the beginning of 2011 after the Aalto University School of Science and Technology was divided into four separate schools inside Aalto University.

- 7.12.2010 Professor Kazuya YOSHIDA from Tohoku University (Japan) gave a seminar talk on ‘Robotics and Space Technology at Tohoku University’
Prof. Yoshida is one of the world’s leading researchers in Space Robotics. The Tohoku University Space Robotics Laboratory, led by Professor Yoshida, is dedicated to the research and development of the robotic systems for space science and exploration missions. The laboratory has contributed to the Engineering Test Satellite-VII (launched in 1997 for orbital robotics experiments) and "Hayabusa" asteroid sample-return probe (launched in 2003 and expected to return in 2010). Today one of their focus is on the mechanics and control of lunar exploration rovers, including technologies for remote planetary exploration, mapping and localization in the unstructured environment, rough terrain mobility, and teleoperation with time delay.
