Industry Partnerships

Industry partners play an important role in the advancement and education of INTM students.  Our connections with industry help ensure that the INTM program is responsive to  industry trends and meets both student and employer needs.

IIT’s Industrial Technology and Management (INTM) program was originally established in 1994 to help employers hire managers trained for careers in the manufacturing industry.  The late Dr. Keith E. McKee (CE ’50, MS ’56, PhD ’62) created the original curriculum with direct input from Chicago area manufacturers.  He worked with Richard J. Daley College (City Colleges of Chicago) to establish an educational pathway from the community college to IIT. 

Over the years, industry leaders have helped to expand the INTM curriculum to serve students working in supply chain and logistics, industrial facilities management, and construction management.
