Research and Centers ITM 800x533

The core tenet of the information technology and management (ITM) program is its hands-on, reality-based approach to education. Vital to ensuring our students learn and do is participating in projects and research that focus on solving real-world problems, preparing our graduates to hit the ground running when they begin their careers.

Students can participate in hands-on projects and research throughout their Illinois Tech career, including those with ITM faculty members who are experts in their fields and many of whom are actively still involved within the industry.
