The Faculty of Engineering and Design at Carleton University offers a full range of graduate programs in engineering, industrial design, architecture, and information technology.

With a wide array of community, industry and government partnerships, our graduate students have the opportunity to perform cutting-edge research, solve challenging real-world problems, and develop innovative solutions.

Our graduate students also benefit from a unique partnership with the University of Ottawa through the Ottawa-Carleton Joint Institutes. This provides access to a wide range of courses, expertise, research facilities and libraries, placing our engineering graduate programs among the largest in Canada.

Choose between a course-based or research-based master’s program, many of which offer funding through a combination of research assistantships, teaching assistantships, and scholarships.
