Students can complete a master’s or a doctorate degree, and a handful of the master’s degree offerings include dual programs with universities abroad. The Dual Program in Electrical and Computer Engineering, for example, sends students to a partner school, like France’s Institut d’Electronique de Microelectronique et de Nanotechnologies, Germany’s TU-Munich, or the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology. There are also several dual degree options through China’s Shanghai Jiao Tong University and Italy’s Politecnico di Torino.

Back in Atlanta, graduate students can live on campus. Students and faculty are often highly involved in research projects, and students can complete co-ops and volunteer work in nearby Atlanta and beyond. More than 65 percent of all Georgia Tech students graduate from the College of Engineering, and notable alumni include Maj. General Chuck Swannack (ret.), president and chief executive officer of U.S. Logisitics, Inc., and Nagesh Kukumoor, an environmental consultant-turned-Bollywood director, actor, producer, and writer.
