The International Plan is a challenging undergraduate academic program aimed at developing a student's global competence within the context of their major. It is an optional degree-long program that integrates overseas experiences, language proficiency, and globally-focused coursework into any participating major at Georgia Tech. It builds on existing undergraduate degree requirements and international opportunities and is intended to be completed within the normal time frame of a four-year undergraduate degree. Completion of the International Plan is recognized by a designation on the student's diploma indicating a commitment to developing global competence as part of the degree, e.g., "B.S. in Electrical Engineering: International Plan."
