In the workshop classes, the IPRO learning goals are delivered in a student-driven, project / multi-disciplinary team format. In each workshop, students will select a lab to join (Community Lab, Energy Lab, Game Lab, City Lab, Education Lab). Students will form sub-teams (and frame the project they want to work on) in each lab based on interest and capabilities. Each lab will be supported by industry partners, full-time faculty with related experience, and entrepreneurs. Students will be able to work in any of the five labs in every workshop. Students will learn about team and project management, framing problems, conducting research, performing analysis, and prototyping and testing solutions. Students will also learn about the relevance of IPRO (and their entire Illinois Tech education) to their future careers.

The courses posted are for the spring semester of 2021.
