STUDENT ACCOMPLISHMENTS

Phoebe Evans (’16) designed a life clock that embodies time through the representation of rings on a tree. Evans used Arduino and LED lights to bring life to the clock.

Six students (’15) teamed up with IDEO Chicago to design a low-cost teff seed row planter to improve the livelihood of Ethiopian farmers.

“The fundamentals you learn in the MSIT program will help you effectively manage and plan changes with your team. You can call 'what’s reality and what’s not reality' because you'll understand the technology."
