The Systems Science Program provides qualified students with the opportunity for master's-level study in a broad range of areas that emphasize transdisciplinary work in the context of general systems analysis. The emphasis in Systems Science is on the development of analytical and integration skills for use in the resolution of complex applied problems that require a broad-based perspective.
Many professors in Information Technology and Engineering, Mathematics and Statistics, Administration, Economics, and other disciplines are active in the Systems Science program as instructors, student advisers and thesis directors. Others are interested in ongoing Systems Science activities including the seminar series, and Systems Science applications days. Their areas of research, both theoretical and applied, span a wide variety of fields in operations research, deterministic and probabilistic modelling, optimization, computer science, information systems, control, and economic modelling.
The graduate program in System Science is an interdisciplinary program specially designed for those who are interested in the analysis and modelling (mathematical and computer) of natural and man-made systems. It provides the professional with skills and knowledge required to understand, control, predict and optimize behaviour in a variety of fields from engineering and computer science to management and applied economics. The program is supervised by a Committee composed of representatives from the Department of Economics, the School of Information Technology and Engineering, the Telfer School of Management, and the Department of Mathematics and Statistics.
You are invited to consult the site www.systems-science.uottawa.ca for additional information about the Program.
The Program offers streams leading to three different credentials: a graduate diploma; a master's in Systems Science; an MSc. To accommodate part-time students, the core courses are usually offered in the late afternoon or evening.
The program operates within the framework of the general regulations of the FGPS, which are available on the Website at the following link:
