The Department of Systems and Computer Engineering maintains close collaboration with major industrial partners. Our research is supported by a wide array of industrial leaders including Alcatel, Cisco, Ericsson, Huawei, IBM, Intel, Mitel, RIM, and Telus, among others.

  • Telus and Huawei have together supported their only joint laboratory in “Cloud Computing” in the world.
  • Texas Instruments has donated a Laboratory for embedded systems research and teaching, which is one of the only Texas Instruments research and teaching laboratories in the world. Our relationship with Texas Instruments has evolved over two decades of cooperation.
  • Alcatel has sponsored a research laboratory which is one of only 8 in the world and the only one in Canada. They have recognized our research strength in computer and network communications.
  • Mitel Networks has sponsored a laboratory in advanced communication.
  • Carleton’s collaboration with Cisco builds on a solid history and productive strategic partnership. In 2010, Carleton was the first institution in the world to use Cisco’s smart converged building model for its Canal Building. Cisco and Carleton share a vision of enhancing collaboration and providing the most robust environment for research, teaching, and learning. Carleton and Cisco have co-established innovative spaces to foster entrepreneurial and inventive solutions that are directed at making a difference at the local, provincial, national and international levels (1125@carleton, a living laboratory; Carleton’s Discovery Center; Cisco Networking Academy). In 2015 Dr. Mohamed Ibnkahla was appointed as the Cisco Chair in Sensor Technology for the Internet of Things. This Chair builds on Carleton’s expertise in sensor and wireless systems, providing global leadership in connected sensors and environments.

These international companies recognize the world leading research and teaching being carried out in the Department of Systems and Computer Engineering. Numerous others are involved in collaborative research with our distinguished faculty members. Please contact our faculty members to learn about their exciting research projects.
