Elevate Your Future Now

Illinois Tech’s one-of-a-kind Elevate program guarantees that our students take part in outside-the-classroom experiences such as internships, research, study away, and competitions. It also provides personalized academic and career mentorship, all in pursuit of ensuring that students graduate career-ready.

When you choose to take part in Elevate, your journey will look like this:

Take Part in Hands-On Experience

Explore this portal to find the unique experiences offered to Illinois Tech students, which include internships, research, study away, competitions, and much more. You can also participate in a virtual internship before you even step foot on campus

You need to participate in at least two guaranteed experiences

Create Your Personal Elevate Plan

Beginning before you even arrive on campus and continuing once you’re here, you’ll work with a career adviser, academic mentor, and alumni coach to plan everything from your university coursework to your career pathway

Included in this process is connecting you with professional experiences and networking opportunities

Become Career Ready

If you take part in at least two guaranteed hands-on experiences and receive academic and career mentoring, our Elevate Promise is this: we believe you’ll receive a job offer within six months of graduation

If you don’t receive a job offer within six months, we’ll help you gain any additional skills that you may need

*Terms and conditions apply. For instance, students must maintain good academic standing with Illinois Tech and meet Elevate program requirements to remain eligible.
