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 Illinois Tech 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 ever-evolving world of technology, the digital world is slowly becoming a platonic realism where nothing is as it seems. Because of the need to communicate secretly, many tools have been developed to transmit information through a mere invisible medium.

For this project, we conducted research into the method of hiding covert information in fractal images through the fractal images generation without the use of a carrier.

With the increase in the communication amongst different devices, processing the information securely and efficiently has become a major compromise.

Most color laser printers manufactured and sold today add “invisible” information to make it easier to determine information about where and when a particular document was printed.

This presentation covered the realities, threats, and cyberweapons of cyberwarfare and cyberattacks, recent cyberwar history, the known state of cyberweapons and cyberdeterrence, and what the U.S. government and the governments of other countries are doing about cyberwarfare and cyberattacks.
