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

Students in ITMM 470/570 were asked to assume the role of CIO of a fictitious company which discovered security problems that could lead to an intrusion.

The goal of this project is the creation of a SIP-based telephone service for the Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT) community. Subscribers will be able to use smartphones, laptops and desktop computers to engage in audio-video calls and get voice mail using this service.

The SIP Performance Project is one of the oldest on-going projects in the Real-Time Communications Lab at Illinois Institute of Technology. It was developed while Lab Director Carol Davids and her colleagues were writing and revising the newly adopted IETF RFC’s 7501 and 7502.

The goal of this project is to interconnect the separate test beds in the Real-Time Communications Lab at Illinois Institute of Technology, enabling the lab to expand its options for teaching, experimentation and research.

The goal of this project is to provide a 911 operator with the indoor location of a person placing a 911 emergency call from a mobile phone. The indoor location must include the floor and room number where the caller is located.
