About Illinois Institute of Technology

Illinois Institute of Technology is a private research university located in Chicago, Illinois. It was founded in the year 1940, when the erstwhile Armour Institute of Technology and Lewis Institute merged into one. Although you wouldn’t find this school in anyone’s Top 5 list, it’s actually pretty good for Electrical and Computer Engineering. This, coupled with the fact that it’s in full-of-opportunities Chicago, makes it a decent choice for students with not-so-great profiles. Also, it has a pretty high acceptance rate, so most students can expect to get it. It ranks #641 according to U.S. News' 'Best Global Universities Ranking' list.
