Georgia Tech Named as One of the World’s Most Innovative Companies

Georgia Institute of Technology’s College of Engineering, led by Marconi Society Board Member and George P. Imlay Jr. Dean of Computing Zvi Galil, has been named to Fast Company’s list of Most Innovative Companies in 2017 for its innovative Online Masters of Science Computer Science program.  Learn more about the degree here.
 
Developed in partnership with Udacity and AT&T, Georgia Tech’s online M.S. costs just $7,000—much less than the $45,000 that out-of-state students pay to attend in-person—while imposing the same admissions and graduation standards. That combination is attracting exactly the kind of oft-forgotten student that policymakers are eager to engage: middle-aged Americans looking to re-skill. At the moment 11,000 students nationwide earn an M.S. in computer science each year; just two years in, Georgia Tech’s program is on track to add as many as 1,200 to that pool. The program recently received its 10,000th application, and the number of applications for the next admission cycle is up about 50%.
