Graduate Alumni Survey
2005–2008 Degree Recipients

Office of Assessment
Caroline Noyes, Assistant Director
June 2011

Executive Summary
The Georgia Tech (GT) survey of alumni who received graduate-level degrees from 2005–2008 was undertaken to identify alumni satisfaction with preparation for employment and experiences at Georgia Tech. A thorough survey process yielded a 25.9 percent response rate. Because of the high quality assurance steps taken and the results received, this report is grounded in the assumption that the results obtained are both accurate and broadly representative of the population of Georgia Tech graduate-degree recipients for those years surveyed. Complete survey results, including data specific to academic programs, are available through the Office of Assessment’s Assessment Data Online Retrieval System (ADORS): < http://www.adors.gatech.edu/ >. The following are some of the major findings: The majority of alumni (80.0 percent) would recommend their graduate-degree program to friends or relatives. The majority of alumni (89.7 percent) were generally satisfied with their overall preparation to obtain employment after graduation from Georgia Tech. Alumni were most likely to indicate that they were prepared to identify, formulate, and solve problems in their discipline (90.6 percent) and to use the techniques, tools, and skills prevalent in their discipline (87.7 percent). Alumni were least likely to indicate that they were prepared to write grant proposals (PhD: 41.5 percent; MS: 22.0 percent). Over 87 percent of respondents reported being employed full-time and 91.9 percent reported being at least somewhat satisfied with their career choice since graduation. While 19.6 percent of respondents indicated that it took up to a year to find their first full-time job after graduation, 45.7 percent reported accepting the position upon graduation. Among doctoral respondents, 33.9 percent reported
