The Hoeft Technology & Management Program is a joint university minor within Gies College of Business and 格兰杰工程学院。您在该计划中的经验将弥合传统工程和商业教育之间的差距。在这里,您将与其他本科工程和商科学生一起为现实问题开发全面的解决方案。



每年冬天,选择一组 T&M students travel abroad 参加商业案例竞赛,与来自德国,巴西和香港的学生一起组成团队。他们一起努力解决重大的现实问题。参与者将他们的知识和经验结合起来,与来自世界各地的其他人建立团队,并掌握他们的管理技能。


T&M Program graduates have been trained to work in cross-functional teams, which is a highly prized skill in today’s competitive business environment. That opens doors to a wide variety of career paths, especially those where problem solving and project management skills are in high demand.


The T&M Program provides students with numerous professional development and networking opportunities with leaders from 公司附属公司 and professionals from our vast alumni network. Programming includes both on-campus and virtual events. T&M students develop their professional brand with input from leaders in the industries and companies they seek to gain employment from upon graduation.


通过 T&M capstone project, multidisciplinary teams address significant technical and managerial issues of a specific real-world problem posed by one of the program’s 公司附属公司. It’s an experience that mirrors the project team approach used by today’s companies. This type of experience is unique to the T&M Program.


T&M Program students are chosen through a selective 录取过程 that includes an application and three interviews. Students apply for this highly competitive minor late during winter break of their sophomore year and then enter the program junior year. Successful applicants must demonstrate knowledge of and commitment to the T&M program, an ability to work effectively in teams, and excellent interpersonal skills.

In 1995, Leonard C. (BS ’47) and Mary Lou Hoeft have made a generous gift to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign to establish and endow The Hoeft Technology & Management Program. Since that initial gift, they have made other gifts to help support the Program’s work with engineering and business students.
