  • Different cultural experience

  • Opportunity to work and understand the American workplace

  • Opportunity to obtain an American degree that has worldwide recognition

  • Opportunity to gain competency and proficiency in the American language

  • Marketability



American System of Education

  • Undergraduate, Graduate

  • Academic Calendar

  • Credit hour(s)

  • Grading System

  • GPA –Grade Point Average



Why Study at IIT

  • Reputable university – College of Distinction

  • Small class size

  • Easy access to professors

  • Cutting-edge research

  • Location



Marty Cooper ( Alumnus of IIT (B.S. EE 1950; M.S. EE 1957) Inventor – Cell Phone



Ed Kaplan (Alumnus of IIT) (B.S. ME 1965) Inventor – Bar Code

  • CEO and Chairman, Zebra Technologies

  • Ed Kaplan, one of Chicago's most successful technology entrepreneurs, studied at IIT, where he graduated with a bachelor’s in mechanical engineering

  • At 26 years old, Kaplan he invented the Bar Code and co-founded cutting edge Zebra Technologies, the bar-coding company



Research Facilities

  • Two federally funded research facilities at IIT

  • - National Center for Food Safety &

  • Technology (NCFST)

  • - IITRI – Illinois Institute of Technology Research Institute



Research Facilities

  • IIT has close ties with other federally funded research facilities in Chicago

  • Example:

  • Argonne National Labs – 1st national Research lab in the U.S. and one of the largest

  • Fermi National Accelerator Lab



Fermi National Accelerator Lab

  • Fermilab is the largest U.S. laboratory for research in high-energy physics and is second only to CERN, the European Laboratory for Particle Physics, in the world

  • About 2,500 scientific users, scientists from universities and laboratories throughout the U.S. and around the world, use Fermilab for their research

  • The primary instruments for high-energy physics are accelerators, especially colliders, in which counter-rotating beams of particles are brought into collision. The highest-energy collider in the world is the Fermilab Tevatron. Because of the nature of their experiments, high-energy physicists must do their research in collaboration with large laboratories like Fermilab

  • It is an essential part of the academic research enterprise, so Fermilab is operated by Universities Research Association, a consortium of 90 research universities.
