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.
