Department of Electronics

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


Passing of Professor Emeritus Miles Alexander Copeland

The Department of Electronics sadly announces the passing of Professor Emeritus Miles Alexander Copeland.  He died peacefully on April 27, 2016 at Kingston General Hospital and will be missed by his colleagues, and previous students at Carleton University.  Miles was a much admired man with a brilliant and inquisitive mind, but also known for his generosity as a mentor to countless students. An IEEE Fellow, Professor Copeland was recently awarded the prestigious Pederson Award for his pioneering work in solid-state circuit design.

Prof. Copeland awarded the 2016 IEEE Pederson award

Congratulations Professor Copeland on receiving the 2016 IEEE Donald O. Pederson Award for Solid-State Circuits for outstanding contributions to the design and application of switched capacitor and RF signal processing circuits.

Alex Ross Builds a More effective Radon Gas Detector

According to Health Canada, an estimated 3,000 Canadians die each year from lung cancer induced by radon exposure. A Carleton team is trying to change that.

Graduate engineering Student Alex Ross first heard of radon when he was looking for a focus for his fourth-year engineering project.

Radon is an invisible, odourless and tasteless radioactive gas found naturally in the earth. Ubiquitous in nature, radon is produced in uranium’s decay chain, and is able to move freely through soil and water.
