Bachelor of Engineering (BEng) in Computer Systems Engineering Carleton University




Course info


Computer systems engineers combine hardware and software to design and implement integrated computer systems for applications in such areas as robotics, artificial intelligence, aerospace and avionic systems, multimedia applications and cloud computing. Carleton’s program will enable you to learn how to engineer complex systems based on computers and acquire an understanding of computers as integrated software/hardware systems.

This BEng program is fully accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board. When you graduate from the program, you will meet the educational requirements for registration as a professional engineer. This program is concerned with the design and implementation of integrated computer systems to solve problems in, for example, real-time control systems, autonomous robots, wireless networks, distributed systems and multimedia applications. You will learn how to engineer systems based on computers and acquire a deep understanding of computers as integrated software/ hardware systems. The Department of Systems and Computer Engineering and the Department of Electronics jointly offer the program.

Your engineering education from Carleton has a broad foundation in mathematics, the physical sciences, and engineering science and design. Our program includes compulsory and elective courses in the software and hardware aspects of computer systems organization and design, object-oriented programming, real-time systems, software engineering, digital and analog electronics, linear systems, communications systems and networks, and telecommunications.

Future opportunities

After graduating from the Computer Systems Engineering degree program at Carleton, you will be able to design software or computer hardware. You will have special skills in working at the interface of hardware and software, especially in the area of telecommunications, embedded and autonomous systems, microcontroller applications, and the engineering of computer-based systems. Graduates of the program are the founders of, and active leaders in, several high technology companies specializing in computer systems and information networks.
