University Research Initiatives

Initiatives 830x553

As part of the university’s strategic plan, Illinois Institute of Technology is concentrating on three innovation-driven initiatives that represent multidisciplinary faculty and student work across the university. These priorities leverage and build upon the research expertise of the Illinois Tech community, address future national and global needs of greatest urgency, and distinguish Illinois Tech as Chicago’s only tech-focused university.

Our efforts go beyond leading-edge science and engineering to embrace the human and aesthetic aspects as well.
