Maestria Dual Georgia Tech-UTP
Diversity in the student body is an important characteristic of the GATECH-UTP program. While applicants are expected to have an aptitude for analytical thinking, a previous degree in engineering is not required. Work experience from a variety of operational and management responsibilities provides a valuable background for the GATECH-UTP program. However, we do welcome exceptional students with little or no work experience. We invite applicants from a wide range of backgrounds.
