The Ph.D. in Quantitative Biosciences is designed to give graduates training in the quantitative analysis of problems in the biosciences – spanning foundational advances in dynamics, patterns, and interactions, alongside applications to challenges in human health, energy, and the environment. The requirements include:
- a program of study in core biosciences and quantitative modeling courses;
- a coherent interface "minor" course of study;
- a minimum of two group rotations in the first year;
- an English writing class;
- a Thesis Proposal;
- acceptance of at least one scientific publication;
- a written Ph.D. thesis and public defense of that thesis.
There is no comprehensive qualifying exam and no foreign language requirement. Georgia Tech requires that all graduate students maintain a 3.0-grade point average.
