Master of Science in Operations Research (MSOR)
Georgia Tech offers you the flexibility to study anytime. Learning online allows you to build real-world knowledge and skills that advance your career while fulfilling your professional commitments. When you participate in our programs, you access a wealth of technological and industry knowledge while building a network comprised of Georgia Tech faculty and industry professionals. You get practical, directly applicable knowledge and credentials without leaving your home or office.
Courses are offered via the Internet. Lectures and student-faculty interaction are digitally captured during regular graduate and professional development courses each year and then posted for students to view on demand or by a packaged zip download.
Students are granted access to class materials online and will have an online account to submit and monitor homework and exams. Interactions with classmates and faculty members occur through telephone, e-mail, and in some cases threaded-discussions within Georgia Tech's course management systems. You'll also have access to the Georgia Tech library.
Students admitted to Georgia Tech for graduate study through the Georgia Tech Online program (GT Online) are assigned an academic advisor, who is their consultant on academic matters. Students communicate with their advisor and the course instructor by telephone, FAX, and/or electronic mail. Routine administrative matters are handled through the GT Online student support office. Students are encouraged to telephone for guidance and advice.
Students who wish to apply for admission to a graduate program to pursue a master's degree must submit the following: 1) An ""Application for Admission"" form; 2) Three letters of recommendation (from professors, professional colleagues, and/or persons to whom you report); 3) A biographical sketch; and 4) Two official transcripts of all previous college work.
Georgia Tech's graduate application fee is $75 per application. It must be paid online at the time you submit your application. You may use credit card or electronic check for payment. YOUR APPLICATION WILL NOT BE TRANSMITTED TO GEORGIA TECH UNTIL THE APPLICATION FEE IS SUCCESSFULLY SUBMITTED.
If you pay by credit card, your application will be received by Georgia Tech the next business day. If you pay by electronic check, Georgia Tech will not receive your application for seven (7) business days pending clearance from your bank. If you choose this method, you will not see your application in Status Checking for at least one week after submission, so please be patient.
