The Big Picture Electronics System-level Design A Circuit-level Design + Software Device-level design Systems and Computer Engineering
Our Focus Systems & Computer Engineering The analysis and design of engineering systems which process and transmit information and which have computers as components. Electronics The analysis and design of circuits and devices used to transmit, store, and process information.
Engineering @ Carleton The Hardware. Software Spectrum More Hardware Oriented The Programs Engineering Physics Electrical Engineering Lead Department of Electronics More Software Oriented Communications Engineering Computer Systems Engineering Software Engineering System and Computer Engineering
ECE Excellence • Industry Donated State-of-the-art Labs • Renowned Professors (NSERC chairs and IEEE fellows) • Research Excellence • Centres of Excellence (CITR, CITO, MICRONET, MITACS, TLN) • Annual research funding over 7 million dollars • Large graduate program (130 full-time, 120 part-time students) • Partnerships with local high-tech companies and government laboratories
B. Eng. In Software Engineering • Software is the fuel driving the Information • • Technology revolution An engineering program Combines a broad foundation in the physical sciences and engineering with skills in the development of timely, well-planned, and reliable software Special strengths in the areas of object-oriented and real-time computer systems. Target first year intake: 60
Software Engineering Modern software design techniques… …and state-of-the -art computing resources.
B. Eng. In Communications Engineering • First of its kind in Canada • Concerned with the reliable, effective, and economical generation, distribution, and reception of information • Communications Engineers will be responsible for the planning, analysis and design, implementation, operation, testing, maintenance, and management of the communication systems and distributed information systems that modern society depends on • Target first year intake: 40
Communications Engineering Voice/Data copper pairs With communications engineering. Without communications engineering. 1 Gb/s Fiber/Ethernet
B. Eng. In Computer Systems Engineering • Computer systems and telecommunications networks are the essential building blocks of the rapidly growing field of Information Technology • A unique mixture of hardware and software knowledge, along with a significant exposure to communications topics • Graduates are uniquely qualified to analyze and design engineering systems which process and transmit information and which have computers as components. • Target first year intake: 140
Computer Systems Engineering Hardware and Software Synergy
B. Eng. In Electrical Engineering • Broad field that provides graduates with a great deal of flexibility • Our program generally reflects the technologydriven industry in the Ottawa area • With a wide range of elective courses in integrated circuit design and fabrication, telecommunications systems, and computer hardware and software. • Target first year intake: 160
Electrical Engineering Design Fabricate Test
B. Eng. In Engineering Physics • A focused education which is suitable for our rapidly-changing technological world • Focus on the physics of optics, photonics and integrated circuits, which are fundamental to the infrastructure of modern society • Target First Year Intake: 20
Engineering Physics In Eng. Phys. , we like to “look under the hood”. Packaged chip Microphotograph of the chip die.
CO-OP @ Carleton
Who Does CO-OP? • Limited enrolment • Early Admission from high school: 85% or above in core math and science • Apply after fall term of 1 st year with A- or great average • Apply after fall term of 2 nd year with B or greater average
Why Do CO-OP @ Carleton? • Co-op makes sense: • Enhance your learning • Job experience = job offers • Earn while you learn • Carleton = High tech • The hot employers are here • Our faculty members are “plugged in” • “Progressive Co-op” pattern • A better work experience • Fewer hassles
Which Programs are CO-OP? • • • Communications Engineering Computer Systems Engineering Electrical Engineering Physics Software Engineering (regular or co-op) (co-op only) (regular or co-op)
Progressive CO-OP September January May Study 1 Study 2 Work 1 Study 3 Study 4 Work 2 Work 3 Study 5 Study 6 Work 4 Work 5 Work 6 Study 8 Study 7
Why ECE at Carleton? • Broad Spectrum of Programs • Co-op programs • Unique Specialty Labs for undergraduates (fabrication lab, Vo. IP lab, …) • Located in the high-technology capital of Canada
Undergraduate Labs at Carleton form an integral part of most courses. We supply the equipment…. you supply the brain.
Advanced Lab Facilities For advanced students, we have advanced labs. High frequency “probe station” High frequency probes
