Come to IPRO Day this Friday

Over 55 unique student teams from the spring 2013 semester will be exhibiting their work at the IPRO Day competition on Friday, April 26, from 10 am – 3 pm in the Hermann Hall. Join us to learn more about their work in sustainability, technology, community development, and corporate relations!

The IPRO Program brings together undergraduate students from all majors to work in interdisciplinary teams on real-world projects in engineering research, process improvement, sustainability, service learning and venture development. Many of the projects are sponsored by corporations or community partners.

At the end of each semester, IPRO teams exhibit their work through presentations and exhibits and compete for awards at IPRO Day. Members of the Chicago-area professional community who volunteer as judges at IPRO Day are able to interact with some of the most talented students in the U.S. and learn about cutting-edge research at IIT.

This year, in addition to IIT’s undergraduate student IPRO teams, we are pleased to host five additional local high school teams through the EPICS High Program. EPICS High is offered by Purdue University with IIT as a collaboration partner for Chicago area high schools. This partnership is made possible through a generous donation from the Motorola Solutions Foundation via its Innovation Generation grant program.
