Various 6000-level math courses that are graduate versions of courses above may be suitable, but should be approved in advance by the Associate Chair for Graduate Studies. Certain advanced topics courses (ISyE 88xx) may also be allowed, subject to approval. Submit all approval requests via email to the faculty advisor.
Free Electives need not be selected from approved technical elective lists, although many students will select additional such courses. A free elective course can be chosen among any of Georgia Tech’s colleges, and should be chosen to complement your graduate study program. If a chosen free elective does not clearly align with your degree program, then you may be asked to provide a written explanation identifying how the course complements your study. Please note that ISYE 6739 does not count as a free elective for any ISyE MS degree.
