Waitlisted Students

August 22nd, 2013 Comments off

Additional capacity has been added to almost all courses that have full enrollment, and several classes have been moved into larger classrooms to accommodate more students. ITMM 471 and ITMM 571 has had two new sections added, 15855  ITMM 471-03 and 15858 ITMM 571-04, which will allow students to view the course live via video in SB-201. Students waitlisted for ITMM  471 or ITMM 571 should register for these sections instead, as we cannot add any more capacity to the -01 sections. If you are waitlisted for a live class at this point, you can hope someone will drop and you can pick it their seat, but if you have not been notified of a seat being open for you by Friday of next week, you need to register for an alternative class. We cannot add any more capacity to ITM 301, ITM 312,  ITMD 456, or ITMO 444-01/544-01.

Message from the Dean – Professor Jeff Kimont

It is with great sadness that I inform all of you that Jeff Kimont, Adjunct Industry Associate Professor of Information Technology and Management, passed away over the weekend.

Jeff has a long history with IIT, dating back to his work as a student at Midwest College of Engineering.  He began teaching with the Computer Science Department in 1994 and has worked with the Center of Professional Development, the School of Applied Technology, and the Information Technology and Management program from the inception of each. He was the first full-time faculty member in the Information Technology and Management degree programs.

Over his long career here, Jeff was beloved by students and admired by his peers.  He has skillfully taught multiple generations of software programmers, and our program is stronger and the lives of his students are better due to him.

Further details for an upcoming memorial will be posted here as we receive them.
