With the help of GTPE, these postgraduate programs enable working professionals to earn Georgia Tech degrees while continuing to work full-time. You'll experience a level of academic rigor consistent with a top-ranked technology and engineering university.

You’ll gain applied practical learning in a convenient format that combines face-to-face instruction with online learning. This hybrid approach only requires you to commit to three week-long visits to Georgia Tech’s main campus in Atlanta. You will obtain the remainder of your two-year education online via pre-recorded lectures and real-time web-conferencing sessions.

Each program consists of 10 courses. You’ll focus on one class at a time, culminating with a capstone course that challenges you to apply what you’ve learned to address a real industry problem.
