    The degree Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Industrial Engineering recognizes students with demonstrated proficiency and high achievement in research within the disciplines represented in the School faculty.  Students earning the Ph.D. in IE focus on critical challenges in key systems, including supply chains, healthcare, manufacturing, information technology, and energy.  After adequate preparation, the successful Ph.D. candidate must complete an authoritative investigation of a special area in their chosen field, culminating in a written dissertation describing the unique contributions created by that investigation.

    The Ph.D. in Industrial Engineering degree offers four different specializations, and each student must select one prior to the Comprehensive Examination.

    It is recommended that students complete the domain and methods core courses before they sit for the comprehensive examination.

    A student is not admitted to candidacy until all of the stated course requirements in the Program of Study have been completed.

    USA requirements for international students

    Each university in the Unites States of America sets its own admission standards so there isn't the same criteria for all the students and the university can decide which applicants meet those standards. The fee for each application is between $35 to $100. 

    After the selections of the universities you want to attend, the best of all would be to contact each university for an application form and more admission information for the international students. Moreover, for a graduate or postgraduate program it's necessary to verify the admission requirements. Some programs require that you send your application directly to their department. 

    Admissions decisions are based on students's academic record and different test scores, such as TOEFL, the SAT or ACT (for undergraduate programs) and GRE or GMAT (for graduate programs). Admission decision is based on your academic results and motivation.



     Ph.D. students are admitted for each Fall semester only, and the admissions process is coordinated by the Associate Chair for Graduate Studies.  Decisions on applicants to our various Ph.D. programs are determined jointly by a committee of faculty members, potential faculty research advisors, and the Associate Chair.  All applicants must select and apply to a specific degree program, although it is possible in some cases to switch programs after enrollment.

    A prior Master's degree is not a requirement for admission into our Ph.D. programs, and students can earn an M.S. degree typically within the first two years of Ph.D. study.  For those unsure about applying to a Master's program versus a Ph.D. program, please note that students in our Master's programs are not guaranteed admission into a Ph.D. program here; we do offer a simplified application scheme.  If you are interested in research and a Ph.D. degree, you should apply to a Ph.D. program directly.

    Application Requirements:

    • Transcripts:   Transcripts of prior academic work are required, as is evidence of an earned Bachelor's degree.  Applicant transcripts should demonstrate strong academic preparation and capability, especially in advanced mathematics and computing coursework.  Those with less preparation in mathematics and engineering are expected to use coursework at Georgia Tech to quickly establish proficiency. 
    • Graduate Record Examination (GRE): Scores from the general test are required, and strong performance on the quantitative section is expected.  Scores from the Mathematics Subject Test are not required, but can help a student demonstrate proficiency in advanced mathematics.
    • Statement of Purpose:  The written statement of purpose should describe clearly why the applicant wishes to pursue the Ph.D., including research and career goals.  While the statement should describe past experiences, it should also identify clearly the research area of interest to the applicant and the members of our faculty that might serve as research advisor(s).
    • Resume:  A resume outlining academic experience, research experience and accomplishments, industry experience, specific skills, and outside interests of the applicant is required.
    • Letters of Reference:  Three (3) credible letters of reference are required that attest to the preparation of the applicant and the likelihood for success in a Ph.D. program.  At least two (2) letters should be from faculty members.  

    Each year, we receive many more applications from qualified students than we have the capacity to admit into our programs.  To help admitted students learn more about our programs and meet potential research advisors, we hold an invitation-only Ph.D. Applicant Visit Day annually in early March.
