Key facts

The Medical Physics degree program is available to distance-learning students at Georgia Tech. All of the required courses and some of the elective courses are offered via distance learning.

At Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) classroom lectures are recorded as the actual lecture is given on campus. Video cameras record the professor, what is written on white boards, overhead pads and student classroom interactions. Content from Power Point, the Internet, and computer programs are recorded as well and synchronized with video into a complete comprehensive lecture.

Lectures and student-faculty interactions are digitally captured and then posted for students to view on demand. Students are granted access to class materials online and will have an online account to submit and monitor homework and exams. Media rich, digital learning tools allow for online lectures, videos, discussion boards, web conferencing, and more. Students submit regular assignments including homework, projects, and papers.
