The courses offered through the Berlin Summer Program are open to all majors and are taught in English by Georgia Tech faculty for GT resident credit. Classes are held on campus at the Technische Universität Berlin (TU-B). The course offerings vary slightly each summer, but they are typically offered in computer science, startup lab, machine learning, and others, and are intended to fulfill CS and CM degree requirements and integrate with the Threads curricula. Generally the courses can fulfill credit for Institute Humanities, Ethics, and/or Social Science electives. All courses are typically scheduled to avoid any overlap or conflict in students’ selection, and students are required to register for 12 credit hours (4 courses). The courses often draw on interdisciplinary themes and exploit the unique learning setting of Berlin to optimize students’ academic experience abroad.
