Ottawa-Carleton Joint Program
Students who wish to pursue studies in computer science leading to the degree of Master of Computer Science (MCS) or Doctor of Philosophy in Computer Science (PhD) can do so in joint programs offered by the School of Information Technology and Engineering at the University of Ottawa and the School of Computer Science at Carleton University under the auspices of the Ottawa-Carleton Institute for Computer Science. The Institute is responsible for supervising these programs and for providing a framework for interaction between the universities in graduate computer science education. In addition to the faculty members from the two computer science programs, the Institute also has members with computer science expertise from other departments. Requests for information and application forms should be sent to the graduate secretaries handling the admission process (Contact OCICS).
The program operates within the general framework of the "Regulations and Procedures for Joint Graduate Programs" (www.ocjip.ca) and the general regulations of the graduate faculty at each of the two universities.
