The Department of Radio Science and Engineering (RAD) currently consists of three research groups in radio engineering, two in electromagnetics, one in circuit theory, and one in space technology. Research and teaching at the department focuses on understanding the physics of electromagnetic fields and waves on all frequencies up to the terahertz region and beyond, and applying this knowledge to the benefit of the society.
RAD is a recognized centre of excellence both in education and in research. The Department is the home of the Centre of Excellence in Smart Radios and Wireless Research (SMARAD) and MilliLab. RAD is also the home of the Graduate School of Electronics, Communications and Automation (GETA).
The Department is part of the Aalto University School of Electrical Engineering (Aalto ELEC).
