Illinois Institute of Technology

Illinois Institute of Technology, commonly called IIT, is a private Ph.D. granting Research University located in Chicago, in the state of Illinois, with programs in science, engineering, architecture, psychology, business, communications, industrial technology, information technology, design and law. Illinois Tech (IIT) was created in 1940 by the merger of Armour Institute and Lewis Institute. Armour Institute opened in 1893 by Philip Danforth Armour. While Lewis Institute established in 1895 by the estate of hardware merchant and investor Allen C. Lewis, offered liberal arts as well as science and engineering courses for both men and women. IIT is divided into five colleges (Armour College of Engineering, College of Science, Lewis College of Human Sciences, Chicago-Kent College of Law, College of Architecture), an institute (Institute of Design), two schools (Stuart School of Business, School of Applied Technology), and a number of research centres, some of which provide academic programs independent of the other academic units. While many maintain undergraduate programs, some only offer graduate or certificate programs. The Institute for Food Safety and Health (IFSH) is a world-renowned food science research institute focusing on food safety, food defence, and nutrition for stakeholders in industry, academia and government. Wanger Institute for Sustainable Energy Research (WISER) is an umbrella organization that joins energy and sustainability research with educational activities across the colleges and institutes at Illinois Tech. Pritzker Institute of Biomedical Science and Engineering is an umbrella organization that enhances the biomedical science and engineering research activities at Illinois Tech. At Illinois Tech research is the hallmark of our culture of excellence. The faculty, students, and staff are leading bold research and discovery in fields where technology and innovation are creating significant, meaningful change. Throughout our colleges and research centres, and in topics as varied as energy, theoretical physics, and social justice, our research reflects our commitment to scientific, technological, and professional knowledge creation and innovation.
