The Fall 2013 DRAFT ITM Course Schedule matrix is now available for download. This shows ITM live courses as they are currently scheduled. The full Fall 2013 IIT Course Schedule will be live on the Web on Monday, March 25, 2013, and registration will open for selected students on Monday, April 8, 2013.
In addition to the live courses and their corresponding online sections, there will be one online-only topics course on Mainframe Technologies which will include live labs on an IBM mainframe system. A new course for Fall is ITMO 417/ITMO 517, Shell Scripting for System Administration, which will be taught by Sam Shamsuddin. We will also be offering the UNIX sysadmin course, ITMO 452/ITMO 552, and for Grad students specializing in Systems Analysis, MIS and Data Management, Dean Oob Carlson will be teaching ITMT 531 Object Oriented System Analysis, Modeling and Design, a course you DO NOT want to miss out on. Also at the Rice Campus, we will be offering a Monday afternoon session of ITMS 448/ITMS 548 Cyber Security Technologies as well as the usual Wednesday evening section. ITMS 555 Mobile Device Forensics will run at Rice on Monday evenings. ITMS 443/ITMS 543 Vulnerability Analysis and Control (Ethical Hacking) will run on Tuesday evenings at Rice and will also run online with a requirement to attend the first class session live; we’ll work something out for transportation for Main Campus students for that session. Jeremy Hajek will teach ITMT 492 Embedded Systems and Reconfigurable Logic Design on Wednesday afternoons at Rice. At the Main Campus ITMO 456 Intro to Open Source Operating Systems (Linux+) will run as a live lab course on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons; this will be an acceptable substitute for ITM 302 which is not being offered. ITMO 455/ITMO 555 which will cover iOS development this term will run in the Idea Shop on Monday evenings. Noland Joiner, our authority on healthcare IT, will again teach the Introduction to Healthcare IT course on Thursday evenings. This is the prerequisite for a projected four additional graduate-level courses in Healthcare IT, so if you want to take those be sure to grab this class.
We expect to offer a late afternoon Rice Campus bus as well as the early afternoon bus we currently run, so students only doing an evening course at Rice can come out later. We are planning that both of the afternoon buses will also be available for students who want transportation direct to Main Campus from Rice, but there will be no late bus (after 9pm) returning to the Rice Campus.
Just a reminder…Friday January 25 is the last day to drop a class for a full refund and to add a class without “issues”.
Transactions on Information Technology Research (TITR) is a peer-reviewed publication that covers substantive additions, insights and challenges to the theory and practice of programming, networking, information management, web systems, user-centered design and their integration. It provides academic and industry researchers a new refereed venue to present original research methods and findings to the IT community of scholars and practitioners. TITR’s focus is on technological developments affecting growth and change in enterprise IT infrastructure, systems integration and implementation. For their inaugural issue, they are seeking papers that will contribute to defining “IT research” by bringing, in addition to defining position papers, current empirical, methodological and theoretical investigations of IT artifacts, the deployment of IT systems, as well as end user experience to the IT community.
The editors and reviewers of TITR encourage IT faculty, practitioners and students to contribute original scholarship, including deeper investigations and fuller descriptions of research presented at conferences and symposia. In order to bring new research findings to their readers, TITR is committed to keeping the publication process (receipt, review, revision and publication) to a bi-annual cycle. The ITM program is strongly committed to student research and we encourage all of our students (and faculty) to take advantage of this new opportunity.
Jeannie Hartig, IIT Vice President of Marketing and Communications has sent us the following statement:
“Last night two exam proctors fell ill in two different rooms in Stuart Building and were transported to the hospital. In addition, an IIT student in a third classroom reported feeling ill. We are sorry to report that one of the proctors died of apparent cardiac arrest; the other was treated at the hospital and released. The IIT student reported back to the instructor this morning that he was well again after having gotten a good night’s sleep.
Stuart Building is safe and we have absolutely no reason to believe these incidents were connected or caused by any environmental factor.
Our sympathies go out to our colleague’s family and friends. It is important to everyone that information be factual and not based on unfounded rumor as we move forward. If you have questions or concerns, please contact either Jeannie Hartig, VP of Marketing and Communications, or Evan Venie, Senior Director of Communications.”
Ms Hartig conveyed that she has absolutely NO concerns for the safety of students at the Stuart Building. She also said that the two incidents were completely UNrelated and not the result of anything that was airborne, viral or contagious. She added that a complete evaluation as to the safety of Stuart Building is being conducted by an Environmental Agency, and that when those results are available, they will be provided to the entire student body and all faculty and staff at IIT.
Any further concerns or questions can be addressed to:
Jeannie Hartig, VP of Marketing and Communications, 312-576-3921; firstname.lastname@example.org
All students should feel safe to return to Stuart Building and resume their regularly scheduled exam procedures for the remainder of this week. Good luck on your finals and congratulations to all of your hard work this semester.

Here’s more on Spring 2013 course registration, now underway at IIT. Since registration opened, we have added the following courses for Spring 2013:
25900 ITMM 482-01 Business Innovation LEC 3 Thurs 6:25-9:05pm 10 Main WH-315 Praveen Gupta
25901 ITMM 582-01 Business Innovation LEC 3 Thurs 6:25-9:05pm 15 Main WH-315 Praveen Gupta
Also take a look at the Joint Workshop course offered in conjunction with IIT’s world-renowned Institute of Design…
If you have not seen Professor Trygstad for advising, please read the Spring 2013 Advising Notes and make an appointment with him for advising at your earliest opportunity!
If you have attempted without success to register for BUS 221, Professor Twombly from undergraduate business has assured us that he will open the course to non-business majors after Thanksgiving–so hang in there and give it a try then.
For Graduate Students:
Despite the fact that ITMO 547 Projects & Advanced Methods in Telecomm Over Data Networks is shown on the schedule as meeting at Rice Campus Mondays 1:50pm-5:40pm, YOU DON’T HAVE TO COME TO THE RICE CAMPUS ON MONDAYS TO BE IN ITMO 547. It’s a project course and project teams and individuals will meet weekly and decide on which day and which campus they will meet. Please contact Professor Carol Davids if you have ANY questions about this course.
The Spring 2013 Course Schedule for IIT will be published on the web on Monday, October 22, 2012. Registration for students with disabilities, athletes, and ROTC Cadets and Midshipmen begins on Friday, November 2, 2012, with tiered registration for all students based on class beginning on Monday, November 5, 2012. Once again, to help with advance course planning, we’ve posted two documents to help folks with course planning: the Spring 2013 DRAFT Course Matrix, which is a quick visual reference of courses offered for Fall 2012, organized by campus (pictured at right) , and a revised full listing of all ITM courses which will tell you what term each course is normally offered in, and if it is offered online.
Some things to note:
- IF you were planning to take ITM 302 at the Rice Campus, please take ITMD 456 Introduction to Open Source Operating Systems (CompTIA Linux+) in its place. We expect a future curriculum change with ITMD 456 replacing the current ITM 302 requirement, and ITMD 456 will be an allowable substitute for ITM 302 for those taking it this term.
- The topic of the ITMT 495 / ITMT 595 Topics in IT course at the Main Campus on Thursday evenings will be Introduction to Health Care IT, taught by Professor Noland Joiner, former VP and CIO of GE Healthcare IT.
- ITMD 412 Advanced Structured and Systems Programming (advanced C++) will run early on Friday evenings (5-7:40pm) at the Rice Campus and will also be online. The prerequisite is ITM 312 and the course will be taught by Associate Professor Sam Shamsuddin.
- IPRO 497-338 will run 2:30 to 5pm on Wednesdays at the Rice Campus, taught by Professor Dan Tomal of the Industrial Technology and Management Program and Associate Professor Jeremy Hajek of ITM. Encourage your friends in other majors to sign up; they can follow it up that evening with ITMD 456 Introduction to Open Source Operating Systems (CompTIA Linux+) or ITMT 492 Embedded Systems and Reconfigurable Logic Design as a free or or technical elective in their major.
The Spring 2013 Course Schedule will be available online on Monday, October 22. Registration for Spring begins Friday, November 2 with the following timeline for the start of registration for each group as indicated:
- Friday Nov. 2: ROTC, athletes, students with disabilities
- Monday Nov. 5: Graduate students and U5 fifth year undergraduates
- Tuesday Nov. 6: U4 fourth year undergraduates
- Wednesday Nov. 7: U3 third year undergraduates
- Thursday Nov. 8: U2 second year undergraduates
- Friday Nov. 9: U1 first year undergraduates and exchange, visiting, and non-degree students
More information on registration will be posted as it is available. In answer to a few questions, this Spring we will be offering ITMD 412 (advanced C++). We will be offering a topics class entitled Introduction to Health Care IT, taught by Professor Noland Joiner, former VP and CIO of GE Healthcare IT; this course will be offered at both the undergraduate and graduate level. We also expect there to be a Monday afternoon IPRO at the Rice Campus. In the summer expect to see a Windows 8 Mobile development course and a Django with Python course.
The new Undergraduate and Graduate Bulletins are now available online! The programs of study and requirements laid out in these books apply to all students who entered IIT for the first time in the fall of 2012. In addition, the revised specializations apply to all students in the program, as it is not uncommon that courses offered in previous versions of the specializations may no longer be available and the specializations in the new editions of the Bulletins are more flexible and offer students more options. By the way, the picture on the cover of the Undergraduate Bulletin is one of the most amazing pictures of the IIT campus and our place in Chicago that I have ever seen. Kudos and hats off to Carol Orze in Undergraduate Academic Affairs and Julia Chase in Graduate Academic Affairs for all of their hard work on these books.

A PDF version of the ITM course schedule for Fall 2012 is available at http://www.itm.iit.edu/data/Fall2012ITMCourses.pdf. If you are having trouble finding ITM courses on the drop-down menus in MyIIT, see our previous blog entry that explains how it works. The only change is that ITM courses are now listed as “ITM” instead of “IT”.
An updated version of the course matrix, a visual representation of Fall ITM courses as they occur in the week, is available at http://www.itm.iit.edu/data/ITM_Course_Schedule_Fall2012_matrix.pdf.
