Revised forms from Undergraduate Academic Affairs

September 21st, 2020 Comments off

Academic Audit Request Form: An academic audit provides a summary of a student’s academic status to date and lists the courses to be completed in order to receive a degree. Students can request an official academic audit from the Office of Undergraduate Academic Affairs after they have earned a minimum of 60 semester hours including transfer credit (90 semester hours for Architecture students), and completed at least one semester at Illinois Tech. Audits typically take 7-10 business days to process, but may take longer depending on the time of the semester. https://iit.secure.force.com/form?formid=217960

Change of Major Request Form: A student who wishes to change or declare a major must complete a Change of Major form. The form will be sent to the department of the intended major for approval. Any change of major that is approved after the Add/Drop deadline will be processed for the following semester. https://iit.secure.force.com/form?formid=217961

Change of Status Request Form: Students changing from non-degree status to full-time or part-time degree-seeking status must submit this Change of Status form. Students must have completed at least one semester (12 hours) of relevant coursework at Illinois Tech and must be in good academic standing in order to be eligible for changing their status. https://iit.secure.force.com/form?formid=217962

Dual Degree/Double Major Request Form: Students who wish to earn two undergraduate degrees can declare a Dual Degree. Students working towards a Dual Degree must complete 15 hours above and beyond those required for their first degree. Upon graduating, the student will receive two diplomas.

Students who wish to earn two undergraduate degrees can declare a Double Major. This is different from the Dual Degree listed above. Only students majoring in Applied Analytics, Applied Mathematics, Computer Information Systems, Global Studies, Humanities, and Psychological Science are eligible to declare a Double Major, so this does not apply to students in our department. Upon graduating, the student will receive one diploma with both degrees posted.

The form will be sent to the department of the intended 2nd major for approval. Any Dual Degree or Double Major that is approved after the Add/Drop deadline will be processed for the following semester. https://iit.secure.force.com/form?formid=217963

Letter of Intent Request Form: Students in their last semester can request a Letter of Intent for prospective employers or graduate schools. The Letter of Intent will state that a student will graduate that semester upon successful completion of that semester’s coursework. https://iit.secure.force.com/form?formid=217966

Minor Request Form: A minor consists of at least five courses (minimum of 15 credit hours) not required for a degree program. Students who take the standard core curriculum’s distribution of courses may apply them toward the requirements of any approved minor. Note that not all minors are applicable to all majors. https://iit.secure.force.com/form?formid=217964

Reinstatement Application: All undergraduate students who were not in attendance for at least one semester must submit this application to return to the university. The deadlines for the application are June 15 for the Fall semester, November 15 for the Spring semester or April 15 for the Summer term. https://iit.secure.force.com/form?formid=217965

Transfer Credit Petition Form: An undergraduate student registered at Illinois Tech who wishes to enroll at another institution must submit a Transfer Credit Petition Form to the Office of Undergraduate Academic Affairs for approval prior to registration at the other institution. This includes registration at another institution for the summer term. Upon completion of the course, please have your official transcripts sent to Illinois Tech. https://iit.secure.force.com/form?formid=217932

Free Textbooks

September 15th, 2016 Comments off

1f4daFree books are always nice. There are a fair number of textbooks released regularly under the Creative Commons or GNU Free Documentation Licenses, and not surprisingly many of them are on IT subjects…oh, and on discrete mathematics. (We hear ITM students may need a little boost there.) These books may be a good supplement to a course or may just help you learn something new on your own. Read more…

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!

New Graduate curriculum effective Spring 2015

December 23rd, 2014 Comments off

A new ITM Graduate curriculum has been approved by the university and will be effective as of the Spring term, 2015. This has been the result of hard work on the part of the Department Curriculum Committee to create a curriculum that provides clearer guidance to students and has maximum focus and relevance to ensure students are well prepared for their selected career options. The ITM Bulletin excerpt containing the new curriculum is available here at  MITM/MCFS Bulletin 2016-2018 approved – Effective Spring 2015.

Real-Time Communication Presentations and Demonstrations, Fall 2014

December 8th, 2014 Comments off

0_1794-com

IIT Information Technology and Management students recently presented and demonstrated their fall 2014 real-time communications projects to a group of communications professionals. Students were challenged to conduct research, and to test and deploy solutions as part of the project-based learning approach at IIT School of Applied Technology. Unlike a final exam, these students had to provide a working system and defend it in front of an audience of industry professionals—some with 30 years of experience.

Presentations included:

  • The Gateway Project—A gateway SIP proxy interconnects the lab test beds enabling mobile calls to flow through to our NG911 test bed, voice-over IIT system, and WebRTC environment. (Student–Cruz Tovar)
  • NG9-1-1: Performance Testing, a Production-Ready NG-911 System for the Counties of Southern Illinois—Our Emergency Services IP Network (ESINet) is used by the National Emergency Numbers Association to test the interoperability of elements of the ESINet architecture. Students supported the setup and testing, and also did performance tests for early adopters of the new technology. Both types of testing were described. (Student–Bart Dworak)
  • Non-Repudiation of Voice-Over-SIP Conversations (Student–Yango A. Colmenares)
  • VoIIT Project v2: Building a VoIIT Test Bed Using FreeSWITCH (Students–Nkechi Ijeh and Shefali Verma)
  • SIP: SIP Performance Benchmarks—Automated Application of a SIP Performance Test Methodology to Various SIP Proxies: Results and Their Analyses. (Students–Yueqing Zhang, Arthur Clouet, and Oluseyi S. Awotayo)
  • SIP Mobility—OpenBTS, a SIP-based cellular-phone system, was demonstrated, and its architecture, behavior, and use was described. (Student Adesola Ayodele)

IIT has two real-time communications labs, one at the Rice Campus in Wheaton and the other at IIT Main Campus. Learn more about the real-time communications labs by clicking here.
