Support College of Science!
Science underpins everything. It allows us to venture into the unknown. Its discoveries lead to tomorrow’s technologies. It is challenging. Its problem-solving skills have wide application, making graduates valuable to diverse employers. It is fundamentally a global collaborative enterprise.
The College of Science at Illinois Tech offers challenging and rigorous programs in mathematics and the sciences to outstanding students with a thirst for knowledge who want to change the world.
In keeping with Illinois Tech's long-standing tradition of relevance, our science programs provide multiple pathways to the academic, professional, and entrepreneurial worlds.
Why Should you Support the College of Science?
STUDENTS ARE IN GOOD COMPANY IN THE COLLEGE OF SCIENCE.
At Illinois Tech, the College of Science feels like a small private school, but its research is major league. Students are in courses taught by more than 100 outstanding full-time faculty who are top scholars in their fields. That’s right. By faculty. Not by teaching assistants.
Our graduates join a network of more than 10,000 alumni who work in business, government, and academic institutions all over the world.
How good is that?
ACCESS TO REALLY SMART PEOPLE.
We have connections with world-famous labs including Argonne National Laboratory and partners such as Chicago Public Schools and Chicago businesses. Students get access to networks of mentors, colleagues—and a lot of really influential people in their various fields.
RIGOR AND RELEVANCE.
These two words define the educational experience our students receive in the College of Science. Our programs are intellectually demanding and yet provide multiple pathways to the academic, professional, and entrepreneurial worlds. We provide the tools to solve today’s problems and the knowledge to build the new tools for tomorrow’s problems.
OUR DEGREES HAVE VALUE.
Our graduates are hired by companies with names everyone recognizes: Microsoft, Google, Orbitz, Argonne, Baxter, the Chicago Board of Trade, and Chase. Our students have been accepted into prestigious graduate programs from Oxford to Princeton.
WE CONDUCT RESEARCH THAT MATTERS
In the College of Science, students can work on research with internationally known faculty. They can intern at world-renowned laboratories. Or conduct their own research. Illinois Tech undergraduates can do research at Chicago’s famous Argonne and Fermilab national laboratories. That’s right. Undergraduates. Now that’s something special.
All of these factors contribute to making the College of Science a success. Your gift helps us to continue this tradition of excellence, supporting such things as:
- High-quality laboratories, classrooms, and other facilities
- Student scholarships, financial assistantships, awards, and prizes
- Faculty endowed chairs, enrichment workshops, travel, and pre- or post-doctoral fellowships
- Workshops, seminars, and lecture series
- Dean's priorities that advance the College's mission
