Please find below a list of TIM Frequently Asked Questions. For more information and questions please email us at: Timprogram@carleton.ca
- Is there an option to study online?
The TIM courses are designed to be attended in-person in an informal, face-to-face university setting.
However, the TIM program is fully equipped to deliver the courses online to students all over the world. This means that students will be participating in the same way, no matter where you are in the world. Due to the pandemic and further study permit delays, it is common for students to being their studies from outside Canada and join us “in person” in their second or third term (if permitted). Many of our instructors hold online office hours specifically for students that are attending remotely.
- How long does the TIM Program take?
The TIM program is a full-time program designed to be completed in 2 years (6 consecutive terms including Fall, Winter and Summer). The fastest it can be completed is in 4 years since students are allowed to take a maximum of 1.5 credits per term (the minimum is 0.5 credit). Students need 5.5 credits to complete the full program.
- How much do TIM programs cost?
The cost of the program and up to date information can be found with the Tuition Fee Estimator linked here under Master of Applied Science, Master of Engineering, Master of Entrepreneurship, and Master of Business Analytics degree. Tuition fees for the Summer term are calculated separately.
Currently, for international students, fees are approximately $13 000 per term, and students take 4-6 terms to compete their studies, therefore it is approximately $52 000-$78 000. Please keep in mind, tuition fees vary slightly from term to term, so we cannot provide an exact cost. Kindly check the below links on the Carleton University website to have a better understanding on upcoming International Graduate Tuition Fees and estimated costs associated as well as the fee payment process accepted at Carleton University.

- What are the minimum requirements to be considered for admission to the TIM program?
Our admission requirements are a GPA of B+ or higher (both graduate and undergraduate GPAs are calculated) as well as a minimum of 2 years of related work experience. We accept students with degrees related to Science, Engineering, Technology, and Business. Students with academic background outside of these fields may be considered if you have significant technical work experience. We do not require a GRE test. The TIM Program does not include a formal co-op component. The admission requirements are the same for all of the TIM pathways.
The English proficiency requirements can be found below on the Faculty of Graduate Studies website. If you have not submitted an English proficiency test when your application is assessed, if an offer of admission was made to you, it would simply be conditional upon your successful completion of an English proficiency test.
Here are the minimum admission requirements for international applicants:
The (WES ICAP) Course-by-Course evaluation will be required for your final transcripts. Please note that the completed evaluation on final and conferred transcripts must be sent electronically to Carleton via WES. However, if you already have a WES evaluation (USA or Canada), you can add Carleton University, Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Affairs as a document recipient. Note that the evaluation must be a Course-by-Course Evaluation (WES ICAP). Kindly review your country specific document requirements for the WES ICAP prior to starting your application along with additional information on the required documents by visiting the below link.
It is up to each applicant to review the requirements and decide if they believe they meet or exceed the requirements. The applicant then needs to submit a completed application online and then eligibility will be determined:
