Student Projects

Illinois Tech’s Information Technology andManagement 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

In the new age of console gaming, players find themselves connecting more and more online to receive or access more game content. This has left their personal and financial information open to online theft and is now a major concern.

Groups as diverse as social activists, government agents and officials, journalists, and terrorists all hold in common the need for a means to unobtrusively hide information and messages.

The main purpose of this project is the evaluation of StegoHunt, a steganalysis tool used in detecting the presence of data hiding activities using blind detection.

Steganography is defined by Merriam-Webster as “the art or practice of concealing a message, image, or file within another message, image, or file.” This differs from another method of cryptic communication, the cypher, in the fact that a cypher is recognizable as such, while steganography hides

The advantage of steganography, over cryptography alone, is that messages do not attract attention to themselves. Plainly visible encrypted messages no matter how unbreakable will arouse suspicion, and may lead to incrimination in countries where encryption is illegal.
