International Distance Learning

Illinois Institute of Technology, founded in 1890 in Chicago is a Ph.D.-granting university that awards undergraduate and graduate degrees in engineering, the sciences, mathematics, architecture, and psychology, and graduate degrees in design, business and law. 

Illinois Tech brings together and educates people from countries around the world and advances knowledge through research and scholarship. Our univesity seeks not only to to educate students in their chosen disciplines, but also to inspire and prepare them to become innovators, leaders, and positive contributors to society.

Illinois Tech has developed curricula that prepare students for leadership in an increasingly complex and culturally diverse global workplace. In India, since 1997, the university has offered several of its master's degree programs via asynchronous multimedia distance learning.  More recently, Illinois Tech has expanded to other locations.

  • Lectures presented by streamed video on the Internet offer convenience to graduate students whose work and family responsibilities make attendance at regular classes on campus impossible.
  • Homework, projects, and exams are submitted online or via video conference. 
  • The standards, requirements, and degrees granted are the same as in the United States. In fact, working professionals at dozens of companies in the U.S. pursue their master's degrees via IIT's online programs.
  • Admitted degree-seeking students who begin online also have the option to transfer to Chicago to complete their degrees in person, on campus.
