The M&AE Seminar Series aims, not only to broaden the exposure of our students and faculty to new ideas and technical matters outside of their specific research focus, but also to foster a culture of open discussion among members of the Department. Our objective is to host speakers from both inside and outside of the Department, with a portion of the talks delivered by our graduate students. Speakers will be encouraged to make their presentations interesting and accessible to a relatively broad audience.

  • Attendance at M&AE seminars is a program requirement for all M&AE thesis-based graduate students.  Attendance will be recorded at all seminars.  Ph.D. students must satisfy this requirement within 6 terms of initial registration.
  • You must attend 10 (ten) seminars for M.A.Sc. to satisfy this requirement
  • You must attend 15 (fifteen) seminars for Ph.D. to satisfy this requirement
  • Visitors: Click here for a campus map of Carleton.

For more information about the series, to suggest a speaker, or to volunteer as a speaker, please contact Prof. Jie Liu. The current seminar schedule is posted below and is updated as needed.

  • Schedule updated regularly
  • All seminars will be in the afternoon
  • Abstract to be added when ready
  • Attendance sheets provided at all seminars
