Description:The Master of Computer Science (MCS) degree is a joint program offered by the School of Computer Science (SCS) at Carleton University and the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Ottawa under the auspices of the Ottawa-Carleton Institute for Computer Science (OCICS). We offer graduate students an opportunity to augment their knowledge and expertise by combining course work and through research in a wide range of areas, e.g., algorithms, computer security, distributed and parallel computing, computer gaming, computer graphics, bioinformatics, robotics and GIS.

Graduate students in the MCS program can select from over 50 courses that are offered by the OCICS either at the School of Computer Science or at the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. Typically graduate students will engage in a one year in-depth research, in which the student specializes in their area of interest. Students enrolled in our co-op program can apply to work at a local high tech company for work up to eight months.
