The Institute of Technology was created in 1935 and will celebrate its 75th anniversary in 2010. The IT Dean's office has commissioned an engaging and illustrated book-length of IT's history -- including its notable faculty, alumni, research and teaching. This presentation will give an overview of our research, and present our findings on the distinct aspects of the Institute of Technology. We accent IT's notable achievements in science and engineering, and profile its colorful leaders and faculty members.
