Purchasing Materials

Students can now use the university purchasing system, BuyIt, to shop for materials they need for their IPRO projects. 

Purchasing Guidelines

  • Under essential spending guidelines, reimbursements will not be approved.
  • All items purchased by the IPRO Department for IPRO student projects must be returned to KI at the end of the semester except for any consumables.
  • There are many suppliers within the BuyIt system! Students should try and find the right supplier for their needs and never default to ordering from Amazon.
  • All purchases will be sent to the student/team’s faculty for approval before they are ordered.

Idea Shop

Illinois Tech’s Idea Shop, housed in the Kaplan Institute, helps to ignite ideas with cutting-edge tools to enable students to transform their designs, products, and inventions into reality.
