Ottawa-Carleton Joint Program
Established in 1983, Ottawa-Carleton Institute for Electrical and Computer Engineering (OCIECE) combines the research strengths of the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) at the University of Ottawa and the departments of Electronics and of Systems and Computer 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 Electrical and Computer Engineering.
Members of the Institute are involved in ten main research fields: computer communications, multimedia and distributed systems; computer-aided design for electronic circuits; computer and software engineering; digital and wireless communications; microwave and electromagnetics; signal, speech and image processing; integrated circuits and devices; systems and machine intelligence; photonics systems; and, biomedical 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.
