Delivered through the Ottawa-Carleton Institute of Environmental Engineering (OCIENE), the programs benefit from the teaching and research strengths of uOttawa’s Department of Civil Engineering and Department of Chemical Engineering and Carleton’s Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering.

Research areas include air pollution, water resources management, groundwater management, contaminant transport, pollution prevention, water and wastewater treatment, environmental impact assessment and management of solid, hazardous and radioactive waste.

The objective of these programs is to prepare graduates for careers in engineering, teaching and in research in the private and public sectors. Students benefit from gaining knowledge in applied concepts of environmental engineering and acquire independence in conducting research and preparing scholarly publications.
