Ottawa-Carleton Joint Program
Established in 2000, the Ottawa-Carleton Institute of Environmental Engineering (OCIEE) combines the teaching and research strengths of the Department of Civil Engineering and the Department of Chemical Engineering at the University of Ottawa with that of the Departments of Civil and Environmental 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 Environmental Engineering.
The objective of these programs is to prepare candidates for careers in teaching and/or in research, in a private or a public setting. Graduates will acquire autonomy in conducting research and in preparing scholarly publications.
Members of the Institute are involved in four main research fields: water and waste processing or treatment; management of solid and hazardous waste; air pollution; water resources and groundwater management. Further information is posted on the departmental website.
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.
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.
