Students registered in an Interprofessional Projects (IPRO) Program course that falls in the Deep Tech Science track will be introduced to use-inspired research in areas that are determined to be a national need by an external funding agency. Undergraduates in this track have the opportunity to work with Illinois Tech faculty on their research agenda. Students will not only learn how to build and implement an experiment to validate their hypothesis, but they will also learn how the research question could impact a real-world challenge.

Examples of the research conducted through this program include topics such as:

  • Remote Telescope Design
  • Digital Twinning
  • Endpoint Network Forensics in Cybersecurity
  • Cancer Diagnostics
