INTM offers relevant education for those building a career in industry. Our degree programs focus on attaining practical knowledge and experiences related to current technologies and practices employed in industry, with particular emphasis on the development of managerial and leadership skills.
Collaboration with industry is an integral part of the student experience. This is achieved in several ways:
- Interprofessional projects (IPROs), wherein students, under the direction of IIT faculty, troubleshoot an operational issue identified by private industry
- Guest lecturers and facility/plant tours
- Career and job-search support for students
- Graduate student research projects
These activities help strengthen industry while motivating and preparing students for meaningful and productive work.
INTM programs serve students working in manufacturing, industrial facilities, construction specialties, logistics and supply chain, and related fields. To line up with our students’ interests and faculty expertise, INTM has facilitated numerous industry-driven IPRO projects, a sampling of which is presented on our IPRO page.MITO Graduate Student Research Projects offer an opportunity for students to do in-depth analysis of a topic that is relevant to their specific interests and/or current job. Each student is matched with a faculty advisor who draws from years of professional experience to help guide the work.
