Information for International Students
Admission to Georgia Tech’s School of Electrical and Computer Engineering is very competitive. We seek students with outstanding undergraduate records and excellent test scores. In general, applicants should be in the top 5 percent of their class in a recognized School of Electrical and Computer Engineering. This can be measured by class rank, as well as by a relative reporting of your grade point average (e.g. 3.6/4.0 or 18/20).If an applicant's degree is not from a U.S. school, or if English is not the native language, the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOFEL) will be required. Generally, a score of 550 (213 for computer-based tests) is required.
Financial assistance may be available for students with an outstanding academic record. However, this is not guaranteed. Students who are not offered financial assistance at the time of admission must have sufficient funds to support themselves (and their accompanying families) through completion of the program for which they have applied.
Graduate Professional Communications Program
The Graduate Professional Communications Program (GPCP) under the direction of Gail Palmer has established a cohesive program to improve the communication skills of graduate students in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech). The GPCP is implementing emerging technology to provide students with multimedia communication material to enhance their technical skills. The newly expanded GPCP consists of three components: courses, coaching, and on-line material. Additional information about the GPCP courses for international students is available at http://users.ece.gatech.edu/~gpalmer/index.shtml
