|Field of Study:||Geology/Earth Science, General
|Description:||Established in 1982, the Ottawa-Carleton Geoscience Centre (OCGC) combines the research strengths of the University of Ottawa and Carleton University. The Centre offers graduate program leading to the master’s (MSc) degree in Earth sciences. 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 the following main areas of research: environmental geoscience, geochemistry / petrology, geomathematics / geomatics, mineral resources studies, sedimentary systems, and tectonics / geophysics. The Centre is one of the participating units in the collaborative program in chemical and environmental toxicology (at the master’s and doctoral levels).
