Carleton University has a broad range of programs, research, laboratories, and equipment in Electrical and Computer Engineering at both the graduate and undergraduate levels. We are among the largest Electrical and Computer Engineering programs in Canada. Our activity comprises:
- Two departments: Electronics, and Systems and Computer Engineering, which jointly administer most Electrical and Computer Engineering programs.
- A PhD program in Electrical and Computer Engineering.
- Three masters programs in Electrical and Computer Engineering and in Biomedical Engineering.
- Seven undergraduate programs in the Electrical and Computer Engineering spectrum.
- 120 faculty members, including adjunct professors and professors in Carleton’s School of Information Technology who are eligible to supervise graduate students in the Department of Systems and Computer Engineering.
- 19 staff.
Our renowned researchers work in research fields such as biomedical engineering, computing, electrical engineering, engineering systems and analysis, interactive multimedia systems, software engineering, speech/signal/image processing and telecommunications.
Our graduate programs are offered jointly with the University of Ottawa. The Ottawa-Carleton Institute for Electrical and Computer Engineering (OCIECE) includes the Department of Systems and Computer Engineering at Carleton University, the Department of Electronics at Carleton University, and the School of Information Technology and Engineering at the University of Ottawa. The OCIECE comprises one of the largest Electrical and Computer Engineering programs in Canada, and grants our students access to resources at both universities, including more than 60 ECE graduate courses, the largest selection at any Canadian university.
Similarly, the Ottawa-Carleton Institute for Biomedical Engineering (OCIBE) involves 4 departments at Carleton University and three at the University of Ottawa, providing graduate students with access to a wide range of resources, facilities, and courses at both universities.
