Armour College of Engineering traces its roots to Armour Institute, founded in 1892 to prepare students of all backgrounds for leadership roles—primarily as engineers—in a challenging industrial society. Armour College carries on that tradition of excellence in engineering education and research with about 100 full-time faculty and over 2,100 undergraduate and graduate students that are enrolled in a variety of degree programs offered in five departments. Nine of the undergraduate degrees offered by Armour College are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board of Engineering and Technology (ABET). All Illinois Institute of Technology graduate and undergraduate programs are also accredited by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC).
An Armour College education integrates innovative thought, entrepreneurship, creativity, and design with engineering theory, research, and practice to position its students to realize technological solutions to societal challenges in service to humanity. Team-based and experiential learning opportunities inside and outside the classroom as well as partnerships with industry and other on-campus resources like the Kaplan Institute for Innovation and Tech Entrepreneurship not only prepare Armour students to respond adeptly to emerging technologies and workforce needs, but also cultivate their growth as leaders and innovators.
