The objective of the Infrastructure Protection and International Security MEng program from Carleton University is to produce graduates who can contribute effectively to the multidisciplinary teams needed to deliver robust, cost-effective, socially responsible solutions to ensure safe and resilient national critical infrastructure systems.
Carleton University’s strategic location in Ottawa, the Nation’s Capital, provides an appropriate backdrop for those security practitioners, engineers and policy advisors who seek advanced studies in critical infrastructure protection (CIP). All CIP policy and program direction for Canada’s 10 National Critical Infrastructures (NCIs) are centered in the National Capital Region, where students will have access to officials from government departments, as well as leaders from private industry and non-governmental organizations.
Graduates are prepared for careers in government agencies and departments. They are also equipped for strategic opportunities within Canada’s private sector in fields such as engineering, energy, information technology, telecommunications and transportation.
