New External Degrees: Georgia Institute of Technology-Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) Dual Degree Program (MSECE)


Under the proposed dual degree programs, students must satisfy the graduation requirements set by both institutes to earn degrees from both institutes. Thus, all of the appropriate rigor and breadth required to earn a degree from GT and KAIST will remain the same. Students will be awarded academic credit from the approved courses taken at both institutes.


The student learning outcomes and assessment of academic performance of participating students will be as is in place for the individual ECE programs by the faculty and academic professional staff of the undergraduate and graduate offices of both institutions.


The students will choose the classes from the approved degree program lists in order to earned academic credit toward each degree. Upon satisfying the graduation requirements set by both institutes, each student will be awarded the respective degrees. If a student decides to withdraw from the dual degree program and return to the home institute, he/she will still have an opportunity to graduate from the home institute.


Master of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering

Dual M.S. degree program students: GT (KAIST) students will spend the first year at GT (KAIST) and the second year at KAIST (GT).
