The Master of Industrial Technology and Operations (MITO) is a professional degree designed for individuals who plan to make their careers in industry. The purpose of the MITO program is to enhance the ability of the students to pursue their professional goals by providing up-to-date knowledge of the technologies and modern management approaches used in world-class industrial companies. The MITO curriculum prepares students to move into management, supervisory and staff positions in industry. The MITO is not an MBA or an engineering degree, therefore it is not recommended for those planning to pursue careers in academia or research.
ITO courses are presented live at IIT's Main Campus in Chicago and Rice Campus in Wheaton, IL. The ITO program can be completed over the Internet. Using a delayed Internet format (lecture videos are posted within 24 hours after the live session), students can log on and "attend" class at the time and location of their choice. A demonstration of IIT web-based courses is available at www.iit-online.iit.edu.
The ITO degree requires completion of 30 semester hours (generally 10 courses). Each student's program of study is customized to best serve individual career objectives. Of particular note, MITO graduate students may choose to complete a professional specialization in Industrial Facilities (IF), Industrial Sustainability (ST), Manufacturing Technology (MT) or Supply Chain Management (SCM).
