ILTM (Institute for Leadership in Technology and Management)
Bucknell's Institute for Leadership in Technology and Management (ILTM) was founded in 1993 to offer Bucknell students a unique learning experience that bridges the disciplines of engineering and management. The ILTM brings together 18-24 of the best and most highly motivated rising juniors in engineering, management, and the liberal arts to engage in an intensive, six-week, on-campus program that focuses on globalization, ethics, communication skills, critical thinking, teamwork, and leadership.
The students hear lectures and attend workshops by Bucknell faculty and corporate leaders, travel to selected industrial and business sites, and work with companies on significant and real-world management and technological projects.
During the summer one year after the on-campus program, students are expected (but not required) to participate in off-campus internships that involve work at the confluence of technology and management and allows them to apply the knowlege and skills gained during the on-campus program. ILTM students are often able to secure more meaningful and challenging internships than have students who have not participated in ILTM. The Career Development Center and ILTM core faculty may help students secure an internship when needed.
ILTM graduates are uniquely poised to become leaders of organizations seeking to gain competitive advantage from the unprecedented technological, information, and environmental changes occurring in the world today. ILTM graduates also better understand the need to act ethically and responsibly to sustain a healthy balance between technologies, the natural and built environments, and the global economy.
