Attention Illinois Tech Students!
As the IPRO Program prepares to move into its new home in the Kaplan Institute, we are
implementing some important changes to the IPRO experience for the Spring 2019 semester.
We know that many of you pick an IPRO based on the timeslots your schedule allows rather
than on the topic you would like to pursue. As a result, starting in Spring 2019, all IPROs will
either take place on Thursday night or Friday morning.
IPROs will now have two sections in Spring ’19 to offer students greater choice across
IPRO 497-01: Thursday evening: 6:25 pm - 9:05 pm
IPRO 497-02: Friday morning: 10:00 am – 12:40 pm
Each section will offer a choice of team topics which will be listed on the IPRO website prior to
course registration. After enrolling in either IPRO 497-01 or IPRO 497-02, students will be
assigned to teams based on their topic preference before classes begin.
As a reminder, each undergraduate student is required to take two IPRO 497 courses during
their time at Illinois Tech. You should plan to take your IPROs during your 3/4/5th year at Illinois
In addition to the new IPRO timeslots, IPRO will also be piloting some new IPRO courses for first
and second year students. Stay tuned for further updates!
