IIT 397 | INTER-PROFESSIONAL PROJECT | 4.5 quarter hours

(Undergraduate)

Interprofessional projects allow students to learn teamwork, leadership and project management skills while working in multidisciplinary teams on projects involving technical, ethical, environmental, economic, public policy and legal issues.
