Take a closer look at our graduate programs.
Read in-depth stories of Carleton research projects and achievements.
The Faculty of Engineering and Design is research intensive, attracting millions of dollars in research funding annually. Our faculty members are internationally known for research expertise in many branches of engineering and design. Our researchers are innovating at a prolific rate as demonstrated by the number and quality of their published articles and conference presentations.
This naturally leads to our inclusion in several provincial and federal Centers of Excellence as well as research partnerships with government laboratories, industry leaders and other universities worldwide. For example, the Huawei-TELUS Innovation Centre for Enterprise Cloud Services that is housed in the new canal building, we were the only Canadian location for a Texas Instruments Elite Digital Signal Processing laboratory, and the only Canadian member of Alcatel’s Research Partner program.
Graduate students are an essential part of any research program. As a new or current graduate student, awards and financial support are available. The Faculty of Engineering and Design offers a full range of master’s and doctoral programs in engineering, as well as a research-oriented master’s degree in architecture. Some of the graduate programs that we offer jointly with the University of Ottawa are among the largest programs in their disciplines in Canada. Learn more about graduate studies at Carleton.
