Although a relatively small industrial nation, Canada has a very well developed gas turbine industry with both an original design and manufacturing capability and a large industrial user base. Research and teaching at Carleton University has focused on the needs of the Canadian industry over many years. Particular strengths have been established in the areas of experimental aerodynamics for turbomachinery and the use of mathematical modelling for engine performance investigations. Strong links are maintained with both manufacturers and users, and the well-trained engineers produced by the program readily find employment in the industry.
