- Concentrations are available starting with the 2012-2013 ME Curriculum and subsequent catalog years. Students graduating under earlier curricula (catalog years) are not eligible for concentrations.
- Concentrations are optional, not required.
- Concentrations are 15 hours of classes and the classes typically satisfy the Design Elective, the ME Elective and 9 hours of free electives.
- Concentrations are different than minors because they allow students to specialize in a particular area within ME.
- Classes used for a concentration may not be used towards a minor or an additional concentration.
- Students are only allowed to earn one concentration.
- Concentrations currently do not show up on your transcript, but they may be on your transcript in the future. Concentrations do not show up on your diploma.
- If necessary, change your catalog year to the Effective Catalog Year in the chart below or a later catalog year. You can change your catalog year by filling out a change of major form.
- The Effective Catalog Year for each concentration is in the chart below and indicates the earliest catalog year that the concentration is available.
- This is only required for students who started at Georgia Tech prior to the effective catalog year.
- Students on the 2011-2012 catalog year and any earlier catalog year are not eligible to complete a concentration.
- Students who want to pursue the Nuclear Energy concentration must graduate summer 2014 or later.

- Declare your concentration in OSCAR. This must be done before you apply to graduate.
During fall 2013, the ME department held two types of meetings about the concentrations; overview meetings and detailed meetings. Most of these meetings were recorded. The overview meetings are about 5 minutes and give an introduction to the concentration. The detailed informational meetings are 15-25 minutes and go into much greater details including classes, jobs and research in each concentration.

Faculty members have volunteered to meet with students to discuss the concentrations. The faculty members are available to discuss:
- The best selection of classes to reach your personal goals for the concentration.
- The types of jobs that are available within the concentration.
- Research opportunities available in the concentration.
- Benefits of the concentration.
In order to meet with a faculty member students need to:
- Watch the videos about the concentration of interest prior to meeting with the faculty member.
- Prepare a potential plan of classes and have specific questions prepared prior to attending the meeting.
- Meetings are scheduled each fall and spring semesters. Details are posted here when finalized.
