Online learning options provide a flexible and often cost-effective way to update skills, gain credentials, and even earn a degree on your own time, from anywhere in the world. From open online courses that are available to anyone, anywhere, at no cost, to online degree programs that are offered at a fraction of the cost of campus programs, leading providers of online learning platforms offer Georgia Tech's courses, delivering many of our world-class programs to learners around the globe.
The registration process is nearly identical to the other undergraduate courses. The only difference is that you must select the “QUP” section of the course; doing so tells Georgia Tech that you want to register for the online offering. Prior to registration you need to review the course requirments on the SOUP website to ensure you can meet them. Registration will open March 25 and students register according to their time ticket.
A graduate certificate offers increased flexibility for learners who aren't set on a master's degree and are looking for an "in-between" option. As an added benefit, the graduate certificate can either stand alone, be stacked as part of a progression toward a master's degree, or be pursued by learners already enrolled in master's programs, thus enabling them to graduate with both a master's and a graduate certificate in a certain area.
Most students will complete one course per semester, so the certificate will take four semesters to complete. Core courses will be offered in Georgia Tech’s fall and spring semesters, but elective courses may also be available in Georgia Tech’s summer semester.
Yes. The course delivery and structure will be similar to Georgia Tech’s existing online programs, which currently serve thousands of working professionals.
No. Each course is also part of Georgia Tech’s graduate curriculum and will require serious effort by students. But careful attention has been paid in developing the core courses to ensure that they are accessible to students who have an undergraduate degree in chemical engineering or a related discipline.
