Program Information
Faculty: Graduate Programs
Degree: Master
Field of Study: Civil Engineering, General
Description Established in 1984, the Ottawa-Carleton Institute of Civil Engineering (OCICE) combines the research strengths and resources of the Departments of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Carleton University with that of the Department of Civil Engineering at the University of Ottawa. The Institute participates in the graduate collaborative program in Science, Society and Policy leading to the degree of Master of Applied Science (MASc). The objective of the collaborative program is to provide students with the knowledge and skills needed to evaluate the challenges confronting decision-making at the interface of science and policy. Students will have an opportunity to explore how evidence is used in decision-making, how current policies shape the scientific enterprise, and how emerging technologies interact with society. Research facilities are shared between the two campuses. Students have access to the professors, courses and facilities at both universities; however, they must register at the “home university” of the thesis supervisor. Members of the Institute are engaged in six main research fields: environmental engineering; fire safety engineering; geotechnical engineering; structural engineering; transportation engineering; and, water resources engineering. Additional information is posted in the departmental website.
