Student Research Groups

Space Engineering Student Research Group

Krzysztof Kurek – tutor.

Space Engineering Student Research Group – SKIK (in Polish Studenckie Koło Inżynierii Kosmicznej) was formed in 2004. Members of SKIK participated in different international and internal educational space projects. i.e. ESEO, PW-Sat, BOBAS balloon missions. Now, the group start activity with new members, preparing the next balloon mission. Now activity of the Group is focused on realization of stratospheric balloon missions to measure air pollution.

Biomedical and Nuclear Engineering Student Research Group

Grzegorz Domański – tutor.

Biomedical and Nuclear Engineering Student Scientific Group (in Polish: Studenckie Koło Inżynierii Biomedycznej i Jądrowej “Biomedyczni”) was formed in Dec. 2005 by a group of students from Biomedical Engineering. The group worked on software enabling determination of longitudinal relaxation time based of a series of images with different inversion time (TI). The “Arduino for biomedical applications” project has been initiated to develop student interests in the design of new electronic systems, software, and use them in biomedicine. The main objective of the project group is to get acquainted with the electronic platform Arduino programming environment for creating low-cost, flexible and easy-to-use devices. The acquired knowledge and skills will be use at a later stage of the project to develop and implement a multi-functional system for biomedical use, based on the Arduino platform and additional electronic components.

Innovative Information Technologies Student Scientific Group

Przemysław Miazga – tutor.

The scope of interest of the Students’ Circle for Innovative Informatics Technologies (KNITI) is the application of .NET technologies in mobile devices programming. KNITI organized courses for students of our university, two courses on basics of C# programming language, and one course on advanced Windows 8 programming for mobile devices. Students of the Group participated in many programming events and contests eg. in Microsoft Imagine Cup, hackatone Night of The Living Devs. The Circle is the organizer of K-Night LAN Party programming marathon.

Radio Localization Student Research Group – LORAD

Jerzy Kołakowski – tutor.

Radio Localization Student Research Group LORAD was established in 2016 at the Warsaw University of Technology. It brings together undergraduate and postgraduate students from Institute of Radioelectronics and Multimedia Technology. LORAD’s main field of interest are radio localization systems, especially those intended for indoor localization. LORAD focuses mostly on ultrawideband localization techniques, however it is interested in inertial localization techniques and SLAM systems as well.

Members of the Radio Localization Student Research Group carry out various tasks, starting from PCB design and assembly, through microcontroller and PC applications programming ending with localization algorithms design and implementation. Additionally, unmanned, self-localizing indoor flying and driving vehicles are developed.

In its projects LORAD cooperates with UWB Systems Research group.

Electromagnetic Modelling Student Research Group

Bartłomiej Salski – tutor

Members of the Electromagnetic Modelling Student Research Group have realized the project: “System for characterization of materials at millimeter spectrum”. One of the hurdles in the development of devices and systems working in the millimeter-wave band is that the electromagnetic properties of the materials used for their construction should be well known at the design stage. The goal of the project is to develop a practical and portable test-bench for free-space characterization of planar samples in the frequency range 18-40 GHz. Strengths of the chosen characterization method include a broad analysis bandwidth and non-destruction of the sample. It is hoped that students and faculty members will benefit from both building and utilizing the test-bench for research purposes.

3Z5PW Experimental Amateur Radio Station

Dawid Rosołowski – tutor.

The 3Z5PW is the callsign of the amateur radio club station set up in 2015 with the goal of developing interest in RF and microwave technology among students of The Faculty of Electronics and Information Technology and of the whole WUT. Due to the interdisciplinary character of the contemporary amateur radio, the Experimental Station activities focus on the practical use of the knowledge in the field of analog radio electronics – development of components for transceivers, designing simple and more complicated radio circuits and antennas for educational and experimental purposes, as well as applications of SDR technology and uC programming. All efforts allow the club members to make long distance wireless contacts with other stations in faraway places on the HF, VHF and SHF bands in more conscious way.

Current activities are concentrated on education and training of young radio operators (two editions of amateur radio courses), promotion of ham radio and the development of the radio shack. 3Z5PW station operators: Dawid Rosołowski (SQ5JQI), Grzegorz Grochowski (SP5QWG), Przemysław Korpas (SQ7JHV).
