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

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.

Our project focused on giving normal home lighting intelligence the ability to give notifications about the status of a home.

MP3 files have been used for a long time as they provide an efficient way of storing and transmitting audio data that can be rendered with almost CD quality, and are widely used because of these features.
