Application

How to Start

Start by deciding what areas of research interest you and find out who is working in that area. Refer to the "Members" page to find out what professors are working on. Then you may proceed to the application forms.

You are required to make a choice between two universities, based on your selected program. If you are interested in more than one area of study, you should apply to the university offering your first choice of program.

If you meet the admission requirements but are not recommended for admittance to your first choice of program, your application will be considered at the second university. Select from the programs listed below.

Non-Resident students (International Students) please refer to the "International Students" page before proceeding.

Applications for admission to graduate programs may be submitted at any time. However, prospective students who apply early increase their chances of securing financial support for their graduate studies. In addition, applications for admission from outside Canada should be completed at least five months before the desired date of admission in order for students to make the necessary visa arrangements.

For complete details on how to apply please view the instruction page for your selected university: Carleton University or University of Ottawa.

Applicants are required to submit a completed referee form, available in PDF format. If you are applying to Carleton University beginning fall 2013 or beyond, once you complete your online application, your referees will be notified directly so you do not need to send them a referee form.

Carleton University

Important Note to Carleton University Applicants:

At Carleton University, the Electrical and Computer Engineering program is offered by two separate departments: Department of Electronics and Department of Systems and Computer Engineering. You must choose ONE of these two departments through which to apply. It is very important that your preferred area of research and supervisor(s) belong to the department through which you apply. Look through the Members page carefully to determine which department the supervisor belongs to (either DOE or SCE if applying to Carleton University).
