Experience Summer at Armour

3 Students in Engineering Lab

Make the most of your summer by earning class credit, accelerating your graduation, and learning from Armour’s world-class engineering faculty.

Our summer immersion programs give you the opportunity to conduct hands-on research with faculty members based on your area of engineering study and personal research interests. If you are looking for more flexibility, accelerated courses are available without the research component.

The following summer programs are open to current Illinois Tech students, as well as visiting domestic and international students.
