Illinois Institute of Technology Key Developments
Illinois Institute of Technology Officially Breaks Ground on its First New Academic Facility with the Ed Kaplan Family Institute
Aug 25 16
Illinois Institute of Technology officially broke ground on its first new academic facility in 40 years with the Ed Kaplan Family Institute for Innovation and Tech Entrepreneurship. The Kaplan Institute will serve as a one-of-a-kind hub for invention at Illinois Tech, preparing students for the development of meaningful technology innovations that solve complex problems. Illinois Tech alumnus and long-time member of the university's Board of Trustees, Ed Kaplan, provided a gift of $11 million to designate the Ed Kaplan Family Institute for Innovation and Tech Entrepreneurship on the university's campus. As a Mechanical Engineering graduate and co-founder of Zebra Technologies, the global leader in bar code technology, Kaplan embodies the spirit of tech entrepreneurship encouraged at the new innovation center, and with his legacy, the space will provide the infrastructure and programming support to foster tech innovation. Noted Chicago architect and Illinois Institute of Technology professor John Ronan of John Ronan Architects leads the design of the Kaplan Institute. The building will feature technologically advanced building materials, systems and sustainable processes, including a dynamic façade of ETFE (Ethylene Tetrafluoroethylene) foil cushions on the second floor to vary the amount of solar energy entering the building – the first use of its kind in Chicago. The Kaplan Institute will sit in the heart of Illinois Tech's iconic campus, designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, to attract students and faculty from all directions. The Kaplan Institute's design complements the Mies legacy and features dynamic spaces for Illinois Tech's various project-based, hands-on undergraduate interdisciplinary courses. Construction for the new innovation center is expected to ramp up by March 2017, with anticipated completion by late 2018. The innovation center will enhance Illinois Tech's existing hands-on active learning programming which includes the IPRO initiative, The Leadership Academy, Entrepreneurship Academy, Jules Knapp Entrepreneurship Center, Idea Shop and the Chicago Public Schools STEM outreach program Opt4STEM.
