We Can Do That

The Daniel Guggenheim School of Aerospace Engineering offers highly qualified students an opportunity to earn their master's and doctoral degrees with minimal campus attendance through the Distance Learning Program (DLP). As a Distance Learning Program student you will participate in classes with on-campus students using streaming video and other electronic platforms. You will maintain contact with the instructor via email, online discussion apps, and phone. If you are like most DLP students, you are working full-time in the field, and will take only one or two classes per semester.

As a Distance Learning Student you will use the same application process and be held to the same academic and research standards as your on-campus cohorts. Regardless of the location of your residence, you will pay tuition and fees that are commensurate with out-of-state students. Find out more.

What courses are offered through the Georgia Tech Distance Learning Program?

  • Each semester, the School offers a range of in-demand graduate classes, composed to accommodate the anticipated demand as well as the required sequencing of different subject matter. Here is a list of the DLP courses that are typically taught during the Fall, Spring, and Summer semesters.

What if there's an AE course I want to take that's not on the list of offered courses?

  • Students may petition the School to add an AE graduate course to the list of DLP courses offered during any given semester. If a sufficient number of DLP students request the course, and the petition has been submitted in time, the School will make every effort to offer the course. Here's a list of DLP courses that have been taught by petition or request.
