The undergraduate curriculum is enriched by many special programs that allow students to gain valuable experience, perform research with Georgia Tech faculty, and broaden their cultural horizons.
Both electrical engineering and computer engineering majors may participate in the International Program or Cooperative Education Program, two special academic initiatives at Georgia Tech. Students who successfully complete these programs receive special degree designations on their diplomas.
The School also offers a more intensive undergraduate research program that leads to the Research Option in ECE designation on a student's transcript. A primary goal of the ECE Research Option is to recognize undergraduate students who have participated in a concentrated research effort that results in an undergraduate thesis.
