ETC Electromagnetic Test Centre (Spring 2022)

The new Electromagnetic test centre will strengthen DTU’s already leading international standing in the field of electromagnetic systems, especially microwave technology for wireless communication and remote sensing, which is used in mobile phones, radar, satellites, medical devices, security systems and more. DTU has developed a special testing method that ensures highly precise measurements at microwave frequencies. 

The new centre will make it possible to carry out several types of measurements of antennas and circuits in the entire microwave frequency range, from 300 MHz to 300 GHz. As a unique, international facility, it will enable increased cooperation with both Danish and foreign companies. 

Teaching and testing in the same building
The new 1,300 m2 centre will contain a test hall with three anechoic laboratories and a shielded room. In addition, there will be a large experimental teaching laboratory as well as a study environment for DTU students. 

The building has been designed to promote a multidisciplinary environment among the researchers, business people and students who will use the new facilities. The new building will also be connected to the existing test facility.

It will be completed in early 2022, with Elindco A/S as the prime contractor. The architects are Christensen & Co and Langvad A/S Arkitekter, and MOE are the consulting engineers. 

As part of DTU’s sustainability strategy, the building must be certified according to the DGNB Gold sustainability standard.
