Metsähovi Radio Observatory

The Metsähovi Radio Observatory is a separate research institute of the Aalto University School of Electrical Engineering since May 1988. It operates a 14 m diameter radio telescope at Metsähovi, Kylmälä, Finland, about 35 km west from the university campus. The institute also has premises in the School of Electrical Engineering building, Otakaari 5, Espoo.

The Metsähovi Radio Observatory is active in the following fields:

  • Research in radio astronomy
  • Development of instruments needed in radio astronomy
  • Development of methods for radio astronomical measurements
  • Space research
  • Education

Around 20 scientists, engineers, research assistants, and supporting personnel from Aalto University work at the institute. Metsähovi participates in the education given at Aalto University School of Electrical Engineering by organizing courses and exercises for students. Graduate students can study for a licentiate's or doctor's degree at Metsähovi.
