Ottawa-Carleton Institute for Physics
Established in 1983, the Ottawa-Carleton Institute for Physics (OCIP) combines the research strengths of the University of Ottawa and Carleton University. The Institute offers graduate programs leading to the master’s (MSc) and doctoral (PhD) degrees in Physics.
Research facilities are shared between the two campuses. Students have access to the professors, courses and facilities at both universities; however, they must register at the “home university” of the thesis supervisor.
Members of the Institute are engaged in research in different fields of Physics: condensed matter; high energy and biological physics; medical physics; photonics. Additional information is posted in the departmental website.
Particularly for the medical physics program, research supervision may be provided by members of other institutions in the area such as hospitals, cancer clinics and government laboratories.
Most of the requirements of these programs must be fulfilled in English. A very good knowledge of this language is therefore required.
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 website of the FGPS.
