Founded in 1890 as Armour Institute, Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT) is a private, independent, nonprofit, Ph.D.-granting research university with programs in engineering, science, architecture, business, law, design, human sciences, and applied technology. IIT's presence in Chicago serves the university in two ways. Our location supports our global recruiting efforts through Chicago's growing reputation as an international destination. The city also provides opportunities that help shape IIT's educational and research initiatives. Conversely, IIT will continue to be a positive influence on Chicago. It is through the innovations emanating from the university that the city will benefit and thrive—and it is through collaborations that our partnership will continue to strengthen.Something looks off?
