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 offers graduate programs leading to the degrees of Master of Applied Science (MASc), Master of Engineering (MEng) and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Civil Engineering.

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.

The programs are governed by the graduate studies regulations of the two universities. Graduate courses are generally offered in English. However, research activities can be conducted in either English or French or both depending on the language used by the professor and the members of the research group.
