Natural Science1

10 to 11 credit hours of science or engineering courses. Relevant courses include physics, chemistry, or biology (physics highly recommended). Up to 6 credit hours may be in engineering graphics/drafting. Two sequential courses must be completed in a single field and the third course must be in a different field. In certain cases, technology courses may satisfy requirement. See IIT Core Curriculum, section D .

Computer Science

3 credit hours of computer literacy/programming.

Humanities and Social Sciences

Social sciences typically include anthropology, geography, political science, psychology, sociology, and economics. A minimum of 3 credit hours in humanities and 3 credit hours in social sciences is required.

Technical Coursework

31 credit hours. (Candidates with adequate college credit but lacking the technical coursework may qualify for admission based on a strong interest and/or relevant industrial experience.)


A minimum 16 credit hours is required between mathematics and natural science or engineering.

Required Courses

A total of 126 semester hours are required for the bachelor’s degree, consisting of 66 credit hours (22 courses) of junior- and senior-level courses completed at Illinois Institute of Technology and the 60 transfer credit hours required for admission. Students may attend on a part-time or full-time basis, understanding that INTM courses are generally offered evenings to accommodate full-time work schedules of students.

The core curriculum (15 courses) emphasizes proficiency in the essential functions of industrial enterprises with a focus on management-related topics. This coursework includes upper-level humanities and social sciences electives and two Interprofessional Projects (IPRO). In addition, students complete seven electives, generally consisting of three technical electives and four specialization electives. Electives provide in-depth coverage of specific aspects of industrial organizations and their related sectors. Students choose elective courses based on career goals and personal interests, and have the option to complete a formal specialization by taking four courses within one specialty area.
