Degree Requirement(Student)

Degree Requirements

The GT non-thesis MS degree in ECE requires 30 credit hours; the degree requirements are posted athttp://www.ece.gatech.edu/academics/graduate/msreq.html

ECE courses that are taught at GT-Shenzhen are drawn primarily from the following Technical Interest Areas (TIAs): Computer Systems and Software, Digital Signal Processing, Electric Energy,Electromagnetics, Electronic Design and Applications, Microelectronics/Microsystems, Optics and Photonics, Systems and Controls, Telecommunications, and VLSI Systems and Digital Design. Courses outside of ECE will be taught at GT-Shenzhen as well, so that the students can meet the “Minor” component of the degree requirements. Non-ECE courses may be taught in Shenzhen from the following disciplines: Industrial and Systems Engineering, Computing, and Mathematics.

Coursework Form

Students are required to submit a coursework form early on in the program to aid their program planning and to ensure that they fully understand the MS ECE degree requirements. There is a certain degree of flexibility in completing the coursework form. Some sample course completion forms are given below; a and b versions correspond to the same set of courses, but different ways of grouping them.

Example 1a, Example 1b, Example 2a, Example 2b, Example 3a, Example 3b
See the ECE Graduate Handbook for detailed instructions.

Courses – TIA classifications; note that some courses are cross-listed under different TIAs. ECE 6500 can be used as a DSP TIA or Modern Optics TIA or Systems & Controls TIA course. Enter the course grades that are already known.

To submit the form online, please use the Coursework form link from the ECE secure website:https://secure2.ece.gatech.edu/PHP/gradforms/login.php

Revisions to the coursework planning form should be submitted whenever a significant change is made in the student’s study program.

A brief Introduction of GT-Shenzhen

Georgia Tech – Shenzhen welcome video: on Youtube, on Youku.
Georgia Tech – Shenzhen Instagram

In August 2014, Georgia Tech (GT) launched its existing M.S. degree program in Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) in Shenzhen, China, housed at the Shenzhen Virtual University Park (SZVUP). GT is the 55th member institution of the SZVUP, also the first from the USA. SZVUP is an innovative model in China emphasizing university-industry partnerships, technology transfer and business incubation. SZVUP is surrounded by the Shenzhen High-Tech Industrial Park where GT students will have ample opportunities to pursue internships with companies located within walking distance from the GT classrooms.

Situated next to Hong Kong, Shenzhen has the fourth largest GDP in China and has the highest GDP per capita among large- and medium-sized cities in mainland China. It is a clean, green city, has a young population, and is very high-tech. Shenzhen is home to well-known multinationals such as Oracle, IBM, Microsoft, Intel, Samsung, TI, Siemens, Phillips, Kodak, PMC-Sierra, Hitachi as well as some of the largest Chinese companies including Tencent, Lenovo, Huawei, ZTE, and Mindray.

The GT-Shenzhen MS ECE program enrolls qualified students from China, the USA, and other countries around the world. The program will assist interested students with internship arrangements after they have arrived in Shenzhen. GT-Shenzhen serves as a platform for graduate study abroad for all GT students. Even non-GT students can take advantage of the GT presence in Shenzhen: US citizen students who are degree seeking students at other US institutions can apply to become transient students at GT-Shenzhen for one semester, and transfer GT credits back to their home institution. A unique program – the Global Engineering Immersion Program (GEIP) – capitalizes on GT’s academic presences in Atlanta, GA, Lorraine, France, and Shenzhen, China, and encourage students to complete the GT MS degree by studying with GT on 3 different continents – North America, Europe, and Asia in as little as 12 months’ time.

GT faculty teach in Shenzhen on rotational assignments. Admission and degree requirements at GT-Shenzhen are the same as those in Atlanta. Students are expected to complete the GT MS ECE degree in 12-24 months in Shenzhen depending on the specific internship arrangements. Students also have the option to spend the last semester in Atlanta or at the GT campus in Lorraine, France, further enhancing their global experiences.
