ITM Curriculum Revisions Approved

March 27th, 2015 Comments off

Fall 2015 will bring some changes to the ITM curriculum. ITMD 461, Internet Technologies and Web Design will be replaced by ITMD 361, Fundamentals of Web Development. The content of the course is essentially unchanged, but the new title and course description reflects the fact that the extended discussions of Internet technologies and design that were originally included in the course are no longer covered.  The design component will move to another new course, ITMD 362, Human-Computer Interaction and Web Design, which will replace ITMD 434, Human-Computer Interaction. This restores the Web design component formerly included in ITMD 461, moves the HCI component formerly in ITMD 434 from a full semester to 9 weeks, and allows students to apply their new HCI knowledge through hands-on project-based learning. The first offering of ITMD 362 is planned for Spring 2016.

Additionally two new minors are offered in ITM to prepare students in other majors to be admitted to our graduate programs. The Information Technology Foundations minor prepares students to enter the Master of Information Technology and Management degree, and the Cyber Security Foundations minor will prepare students to enter the Master of Cyber Forensics and Security degree. The existing minor in Information System Administration has had a major revision to incorporate current courses and is now one of our strongest minors. Let your friends in other majors know about these!

See the Curriculum Revision document for full details!

2012-2014 Bulletins are Published Online

September 25th, 2012 Comments off

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.

Finding Our Summer 2012 Course Offerings

April 25th, 2012 Comments off

Folks seem to be having trouble getting to the ITM summer course listings through MyIIT. If you go into MyIIT, select Look Up Classes, select Search By Term: Summer 2012, select Information Tech and Mgmt, and click on “Course Search”, it will then show you a list of ALL courses offered by the department, whether they are offered in the current term or not; it is NOT a list of courses offered this summer. If you select “Advanced Search” instead of  “Course Search”, than select Information Tech and Mgmt, then click on “Section Search”, then it will show you the full list of courses offered this summer. OR just to make your life easier, just see the following PDF file:  Information Technology and Management Summer 20912 Course Offerings
