Student Projects

Illinois Tech’s Information Technology and Management program offers an innovative learning experience where students work on cutting-edge projects.  Student projects are mentored by IIT faculty who guide the progress and ensure that in addition to learning it, students can actually do it.
 
Projects are not only a great learning experience, but they also help in job interviews.  By the time our students graduate, they are able to share with interviewers their participation in several successful projects which can help them get the job and be prepared to become innovators, entrepreneurs, and leaders of the future.
 
Below are examples of recent projects students have worked on as part of their educational experience.

ITM Student Projects

Over the past 30 years, the scientific community has been coming out with more and more research showing the ever-continuing escalation of global warming and its effects on communities worldwide.

Using CBORD card readers and university ID cards, this group’s project was to reverse-engineer the contents of the card and create an “Attendance box.” This project was portable and allowed attendance to be taken by professors or at an event that required attendance-taking.

The scope of this project was to create a mesh-sensor network using 802.15 Xbee radios that communicated data back to a central server. This data was correlated to physical building location and part of an alerting service.

This project was designed to overcome the problem of collecting adverse temperature data from a remote location (e.g., temperatures outside of a house or in a refrigerated room).

Chromiris is a hand-held colorimeter built using off-the-shelf parts to tell the color of any object in hex or RGB values. Using color sensors and LCDs, the group constructed a compact solution to the issue of detecting true color.
