About this course

This four-year curriculum leading to the Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering (BS CE) enables the graduate to enter professional practice as an engineer or to continue his or her studies in programs leading to advanced degrees in the following broad fields of specialization:

  • construction engineering and management,
  • environmental engineering,
  • environmental hydraulics,
  • geotechnical engineering,
  • hydrology,
  • materials,
  • structural engineering and mechanics,
  • transportation, and
  • water resources planning and management.

This BS CE degree program is designed to offer depth in course material considered essential for all civil engineers, as well as flexibility in selecting elective courses that offer breadth of topic exposure.

Civil engineers contribute to society in numerous ways; thus, the School's philosophy is to provide the student with a range of electives that meet student interests. Civil engineers must not only be technically proficient, but also must be effective in working with people and with professionals in other disciplines.

Eligibility Criteria

The minimum GPA requirement for high demand majors (Computer Science and Engineering) is 3.3 on a 4.0-grade scale. The GPA requirement for all remaining majors is 3.0 on a 4.0-grade scale.

Multiple GPA reviews are completed as part of the holistic review process.  An overall GPA review includes coursework taken at all previous institutions (domestic and international). Math and lab science GPA reviews include calculus level and higher math and lab science courses.

Applicants are expected to complete each admission-required course sequence (English, mathematics, lab science) with a 3.0 cumulative GPA or higher. Mathematics and/or lab science courses that do not satisfy Georgia Tech degree requirements may not be included within GPA calculations.  Lab sciences courses require three (3) hour lecture and one (1) hour lab components.

There is a “no grade forgiveness policy” as part of the transfer application review.

Repeat course grades where a “C” grade or higher has already been earned are not included within GPA calculations. Repeat course grades due to withdrawal (WF) or failing grades (below a C grade) are included within GPA calculations.

SAT Subject Tests

  • Students are not required to take SAT Subject Tests for admission to Georgia Tech. However, if you have taken the exams, you are welcome to submit your scores to our office for consideration with your application. You may also earn course credit for Chemistry and/or English subject tests.

AP Scores

  • AP test results that are submitted electronically at the time of application may be reviewed for freshman admission. However, you are not required to submit exam results when you apply. If you are admitted and choose to enroll, we would encourage you to submit all results at that time for possible course credit.

IB Scores

  • IB results are used to award course credit for incoming students. For students attending an IB school that does not award letter or number (0-100) grades, we will use the IB results to evaluate the academic performance for admission.


  • Students who are non-native English speakers are encouraged to take the TOEFL or IELTS exam.

Evaluating your Test Scores

  • All freshman applicants must take the SAT and/or the ACT with writing.
  • We accept both tests and have no preference between the two.
  • We use your highest section scores in the evaluation process.
  • Each time you submit new scores to us, we will update your record with your highest scores.
  • Our bottom line is that testing is only one part of our holistic review, and we want students to be able to put their best foot forward.

Our advice for completing this portion of the application

  • Take both tests! Many students feel more comfortable with one testing format over the other, resulting in higher scores.
  • Send us your scores when you take the test – don’t wait! Your scores may fluctuate with each test instance, but we will only use the highest section in our review of your application. Delaying sending us your scores could put you at risk of missing an application date or being excluded from information sent from our office.
  • Keep us informed. If you plan to retake a test after your submission date, tell us on your application.
