The MAE 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.mailto:mostafa.elsayed@carleton.ca

For more information about the series, to suggest a speaker, or to volunteer as a speaker, please contact Dr. Mostafa El Sayed.

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
