Interprofessional Projects (IPRO) Program
Go Inside IPRO
Read about current and upcoming IPRO courses, student projects, and Innovation Day.
“My IPRO was a fantastic introduction to real-world problem solving. Over the course of the semester, we worked on setting up an automatic irrigation system for an urban farm we have on campus, UFarm. Not only was I able to work with students of different backgrounds, I was able to work with the Wanger Institute for Sustainable Energy Research and see the applications of renewable energy and resource conservation right on the farm.”
“I want to make infrastructure reliable and sustainable for communities. My IPRO aims to tackle housing feasibility and zoning issues surrounding the Bronzeville area in addition to maintaining quality of life and sustainability. I hope to see a day where all people can live within their means and have a place to call home that they are proud of. This project is a good place to start.”
“The resources here and unique programs like IPRO allow you to experience creating professional-grade work while still in school. Learning to clearly identify a problem and apply the correct tools to solve that problem is an important skill, one that is emphasized at Illinois Tech.”
