Admission Requirements

Candidates must complete an application for undergraduate admission and submit official transcripts from all colleges attended. The BINTM program nominally requires the transfer of 60 credit hours as outlined in the following admission requirements:

Mathematics1

Five to six credit hours at the level of MATH 119 (at IIT) or above. Statistics highly recommended. Technical mathematics is also accepted. See Illinois Tech Core Curriculum, section D.

Natural Science1

10 to 11 credit hours of science or engineering courses. Relevant courses include physics, chemistry, or biology (physics highly recommended). Up to six credit hours may be in engineering graphics/drafting/CAD. 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 Illinois Tech Core Curriculum, section D.

Computer Science

Three credit hours of computer literacy/programming.

Humanities and Social Sciences

Nine credit hours. Humanities courses include literature, philosophy (except logic), and history. Social sciences typically include anthropology, geography, political science, psychology, sociology, and economics (recommended). A minimum of three credit hours in humanities and three 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.)

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.
