GT-Shenzhen PDO Courses

GT-Shenzhen PDO courses mirror the courses listed on the our MS ECE program website as much as possible. Once accepted, please set up a GTPE user account.

To sign up for a PDO course:

  1. Students must complete a Non-Credit Course Agreement Form before receiving a registration link. ONE FORM PER COURSE.
  2. Please TYPE the entire form in English (include your GT ID#).
  3. Follow the sample of Non-Credit Course Agreement Form “GeorgeBurdell_ECE6100_FA23“.
  4. Rename the file in the format of “LastNameFirstName_Course#_Semester”.
  5. Email the form to academic@nullgtsi.edu.cn. Repeat the process if you have course changes.
  6. Update us if you change your email address at any time.

A PDO student is only allowed to enroll in one or two courses per semester unless they have met the English proficiency requirement for the intended GT degree program. PDO students are not allowed to enroll in more than 3 courses total before being admitted into the GT-Shenzhen Master’s degree program.

PLEASE READ the Canvas instructions and FAQs to set up your Dashboard and review the course content, announcements, etc.   

Advanced Standing/Transfer Credit

Two weeks after the end of the semester, you may visit this page https://pe.gatech.edu/transcript-request-form to request your transcript. Include your full name, GTID#, and specify the term(s) and course numbers. 

Once the student becomes a degree-seeking student at GT-Shenzhen, up to 9 CEUs are transferable to the degree program to account for degree credit (will not count toward your GPA). Forward your transcript to the appropriate department for processing after registration closes; include your full name, GT ID number.  Please see our FAQ page for information regarding the timeline and how to review the credits.
