Application Requirement

Application Requirement

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis, first come, first served. Admission decisions can be made only after all application materials (online application, recommendation letters, official TOEFL and GRE scores etc) have been received by Georgia Tech.

Students wishing to participate in the Georgia Tech (GT)-Shenzhen MS degree program in Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) must apply online to GT and meet the current GT ECE admission requirements.

Official GRE score report sent from the ETS is required for all applicants:
-The GRE institution code for Georgia Tech is 5248
-The GRE department codes for ECE are 1201-1204 (any of these codes are valid)

Please note that a new GRE format has been adopted by the ETS since August 1, 2012. Here are the concordance tables that compare the new GRE scores (on the 130-170 scale) with the old GRE scores (on the 200-800 scale). If you take the GRE multiple times, Georgia Tech will use the highest section scores for admission decisions. For this reason, we highly recommend that you provide information on all of your GRE test scores and not just the GRE test with the highest total score. For example, if you took an old GRE before August 2011 with scores 390V/800Q/3.0AW, and you took a new GRE recently with scores 153V/163Q/4.0AW, we will use 500V/800Q/4.0AW for your GT admission decisions, since the new 153V is equivalent to the old 500V, the new 163Q is equivalent to the old 780Q according to the concordance tables. For this reason, we highly recommend that you provide information on all of your GRE test scores and not just the GRE test with the highest total score.

Official TOEFL score report sent from the ETS is required for Chinese students and all other applicants whose native language is not English:
– The TOEFL institution code for Georgia Tech is 5248
– The TOEFL department code for ECE is 66
The minimum TOEFL score for graduate admission by Georgia Tech is 550 paper-based, 213 computer-based, or 79 internet-based.
