Master of Science in Civil Engineering
Georgia Tech and CEE policy can be complicated but you should always refer to the CEE Handbook and the Georgia Tech Catalog.
- All our Master’s degree programs are 30 credits of approved courses. Please view the page that applies to your specialization below.
- 21 of those credits must be at the 6000 level or above.
- 9 credits can be undergrad courses, but must be 4000 level only. They must be approved courses.
- A maximum of 3 credits of Pass/Fail courses can count towards your Master’s degree (with the exception of thesis credits).
18 credits in Specialization Courses
