Dual Degree Programs

Georgia Tech offers a dual-degree option allowing students to combine an M.S. or Ph.D. degree with other degree programs within the College of Engineering. This interdisciplinary degree track will provide graduates with deep knowledge of technology, an analytical skillset, business acumen, and an entrepreneurial mindset to propel them to the forefront of their chosen fields.

The dual degree option allows students to count 15 credit hours from their M.S. or Ph.D. courses toward their MBA elective requirements, reducing the time required to complete both degrees. Thus, students can complete an MBA with 39 credit hours instead of 54 credit hours.

Students who have been admitted to an M.S. or Ph.D. program in the Georgia Tech College of Engineering or College of Computing (excluding online degree programs) are eligible to pursue the dual degree option. This includes students in interdisciplinary programs where the two colleges participate, such as the M.S. programs in Analytics and Quantitative and Computational Finance.

Georgia Tech students currently pursing graduate degrees in the Colleges of Engineering and Computing who would like to learn more about the dual degree are invited to attend an information session. Please visit the MBA dual degree web page for details about program structure, the application and admissions process, and tuition and financing.

Dual Degree Program with Ocean Science and Engineering

The mission of the graduate program in Ocean Science & Engineering (OSE) is to educate the next generation of transdisciplinary ocean scientists and engineers by combining the basic and applied sciences with innovative ocean technologies, and to advance interdisciplinary research at the frontiers of the physical, biological, chemical and human dimensions of ocean systems. OSE emphasizes innovative holistic and transdisciplinary research involving the interactions of the ocean physical/biological/chemical systems and human-induced perturbations, ranging from climate change to coastal developments, from ocean energy to sea-level rise to its local and global potential consequences. Bridging across time- and spatial-scales the OSE program will also provide an integrative, multi-scale training for the new generations of scientists and engineers in areas that will bridge and encompass traditional disciplines.
