Georgia Tech offers several interdisciplinary degrees in addition to those offered in each of the eight College of Engineering schools. These degree programs are offered by multiple home schools in the College (and sometimes outside the college).

Students in the interdisciplinary programs can work with faculty on projects outside traditional disciplinary boundaries and across different academic units, gaining unique educational and research experiences. Many of our interdisciplinary programs are long-standing and rank among the best in the nation and around the world.

Admission to these programs occurs by application through the eight College of Engineering schools, although the curriculum is administered by the interdisciplinary programs.

Our Interdisciplinary Programs


Representing units from the Colleges of Engineering, Computing, and Sciences, the Bioengineering Ph.D. program enforces depth and breadth in coursework, provides a solid research experience, and is reflective of the disciplinary background of the student's home school.

Machine Learning

The Machine Learning Ph.D. program is a collaborative venture between the Colleges of Engineering, Computing, and Sciences. The central goal of the program is to train students to perform original, independent research.


The Master of Science in Robotics is designed to produce industry-ready engineers and scientists with the theoretical knowledge and practical skills needed to meet the challenges of rapidly growing interdisciplinary technologies in professional careers related to designing and developing robotics and automation solutions.
