Welcome to the Department of Electronics at Carleton University. Together with our sister Department of System and Computer Engineering we offer programs in Electrical Engineering, Engineering Physics, Sustainable and Renewable Energy Engineering. We are one of the largest and most research intensive departments in CAD for electronic circuit design, RF and microwave circuits, photonics and integrated circuit technology. The source of our success is due to our outstanding and internationally respected faculty members.


Congratulations to spring 2021 graduates from everyone in the Department of Electronics. Best wishes for your future and we hope you will stay in touch.
