The Department of Systems and Computer Engineering at Carleton University has a large and active graduate program. A Ph.D. program and three master’s programs are offered. Here is how to apply.

NEW! In celebration of Carleton’s 75th anniversary, a generous new scholarship has been established for incoming graduate students in one of the research graduate programs (MASc, PhD) in Systems and Computer Engineering. Funding up to $45,000 in the first year is available. See here for details.

Programs in Electrical and Computer Engineering

M.A.Sc. in Electrical and Computer Engineering

M.Eng. in Electrical and Computer Engineering

Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering

These programs are offered through the Ottawa-Carleton Institute for Electrical and Computer Engineering (OCIECE), which combines the resources of the Department of Systems and Computer Engineering and the Department of Electronics at Carleton University, with the School of Information Technology and Engineering at the University of Ottawa. Together we form one of the largest Electrical and Computer Engineering programs in Canada, providing access to a very large number of graduate courses and laboratories.

Programs in Biomedical Engineering

M.A.Sc. in Biomedical Engineering

M.Eng. in Biomedical Engineering

Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering

These programs are offered through the Ottawa-Carleton Institute for Biomedical Engineering (OCIBME) and have four fields of study: Medical Instrumentation, Biomedical Image Processing, Biomechanics and Biomaterials, Medical Informatics and Telemedicine.

Specialization in Data Science

Students can apply for admission to the concentration in Data Science in conjunction with the MASc or MEng in Electrical and Computer Engineering, or the MASc in Biomedical Engineering. This will focus the master’s program on understanding how to analyze and use “big data” sets collected by governments, industry, NGOs, etc.

Specialization in Bioinformatics

Students in the MASc in Biomedical Engineering can apply for admission to the Specialization in Bioinformatics, which crosses traditional disciplinary boundaries such as computer science, chemistry, biology, biochemistry, engineering and the medical sciences.

Research

Our faculty members conduct advanced research on a broad range of topics in Electrical and Computer Engineering and Biomedical Engineering in our advanced research facilities and laboratories.
