Want to pay less and never go to class?
Unlike most MOOCs, it's not free of charge--but a master's will cost $6,600 rather than $44,000. Sooo....
MOOCs used to be dissed as useless and not helpful for getting jobs. Now they are morphing into credit courses at a rapid rate. Check out Udacity.org--they are cobbling up credit courseloads.
The Georgia Tech program was besieged with applicants--a lot (79%) from the US. This is in contrast to foreign nationals' dominating graduate engineering.
This is not college-age kids. If you have a four-year degree with a 3.0--you will be accepted. But you will have to make B in two courses to stay.
Unlike the on-campus version, qualified people will not be turned away.
