Program Description

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 in Environmental Engineering (MASc), Master of Applied Science in Environmental Engineering (MASc) Specialization in Environmental Sustainability, a Master of Engineering (MEng) and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Environmental Engineering.

Collaborative Specialization Description

The Institute of the Environment offers a master’s level collaborative specialization in Environmental Sustainability and an interdisciplinary Master of Science (MSc) in Environmental Sustainability. The master’s level collaborative specialization in Environmental Sustainability allows students enrolled in one of the participating master’s programs to specialize in environmental sustainability.

The guiding objective of the collaborative program is to provide graduate students with the knowledge and skills needed to identify and analyze the economic, legal, policy and scientific dimensions of environmental problems, and to employ an evidence-based approach to develop rational policy options for addressing those problems.

The degree awarded specifies the primary program and indicates “Specialization in Environmental Sustainability.”

Note: International candidates must check the admission equivalencies for the diploma they received in their country of origin.

  • Pay the $100 ($CDN non-refundable) application fee.
  • Demonstrate a good academic performance in previous studies as shown by official transcripts, research reports, abstracts or any other documents demonstrating research skills.
  • Identify at least one professor who is willing to supervise your research and thesis.
    • We recommend that you contact potential thesis supervisors as soon as possible.
    • To register, you need to have been accepted by a thesis supervisor.
    • The supervisor’s name is required at the time of application.
  • Meet the following additional requirements:
    • All students entering the program are required to have courses in mathematics, probability and statistics equivalent to courses required in undergraduate engineering programs.
    • All students entering the program are also required to have taken three undergraduate courses equivalent to the following University of Ottawa courses:
      • CHG 2312 or CVG 2116
      • CVG 2132
      • CVG 3132
      • These courses are considered to provide the minimum background in fluid mechanics, and in physical, chemical, and biochemical treatment principles, necessary to adequately follow environmental engineering courses at the graduate level. Depending on their background, students may have been exposed to these principles through a different combination of courses in their undergraduate curriculum. Students entering the program without an equivalent background in these topics are expected to take these courses early in their studies and they are considered additional to those normally required for the degree. The undergraduate courses required are specified in the certificate of admission.

Language Requirements

Applicants must be able to understand and fluently speak the language of instruction (French or English) in the program to which they are applying. Proof of linguistic proficiency may be required.

Applicants whose first language is neither French nor English must provide proof of proficiency in the language of instruction.

Language tests recognized by the University of Ottawa:

  • TOEFL: 550 (paper-based) or 79-80 (internet-based); or
  • IELTS: 6.5 Overall – 5.0 Individual (paper-based or internet-based); or
