With a goal to provide disciplinary and interdisciplinary teaching, study, and research, the creation and dissemination of knowledge, the involvement of its students in experiential learning at home and abroad, and the improvement of its community, Carleton University is an independent and collegial university.

Why choose to study at Carleton University? Carleton offers opportunities for practical education both inside and outside of the lecture hall or lab. Experiments in the lab, involvement in research projects, field courses, practicums, and co-op employment are all opportunities to gain experience. As a source of brilliance, cultural enrichment, and social strength, diversity is something that Carleton University is dedicated to encouraging within its community. It has one of the biggest engineering faculties in the nation, and its cognitive science programme is still growing.
