Ottawa-Carleton Joint Program
Established in 1983, the Ottawa-Carleton Institute for Mechanical and Aerospatial Engineering (OCIMAE) combines the research strengths of the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Ottawa and the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Carleton University.
The Institute offers graduate programs leading to the degrees of Master of Applied Science (MASc), Master of Engineering (MEng) and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Mechanical Engineering and in Advanced Materials and Manufacturing.
Members of the Institute are involved in six main research fields: thermal and fluid engineering; solid mechanics and design; materials and manufacturing; controls and robotics; biomedical engineering; aeronautical and space engineering. Further information is posted on the departmental websites.
Most of the courses in the graduate programs are offered in English. Research activities can be conducted either in English, French or both, depending on the language used by the professor and the members of his or her research group.
In accordance with the University of Ottawa regulation, students have a right to produce their work, their thesis, and to answer examination questions in French or in English.
The program operates within the general framework of the regulations and procedures for Joint Graduate Programs and the general regulations of the graduate faculty at each of the two universities. The general regulations of the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies (FGPS) of the University of Ottawa are posted on the FGPS website.
