Abstract : This report describes the projects developed and implemented with support from Grant 'Improving the Quality and Impact of DOD Research through Enhancement of the Computing Infrastructure at Illinois Institute of Technology.' The report covers the period from June 1, 1994 to May 31, 19S7. The three years of this project focused on implementing the plans described in the original proposal and improved by a series of faculty Task Forces during the first year of the project under the supervision of a Steering Committee. Regular meetings of the Steering Committee throughout the grant period resulted in the modifications of a number of decisions to better serve the needs of the university in the face of changing conditions. All of the work performed under this grant is described herein in the eleven key topics of the proposal. The DOD funding has allowed IIT to implement many new computer related programs, furnish new laboratories with state-of-the-art equipment, substantially upgrade nearly all existing computer laboratories, and ultimately improve curricula. This funding has also provided extensive campus-wide Ethemet hardware and wiring to all buildings, and combined with the other software and hardware acquisitions, this has allowed IIT to dramatically improve computer and network services to on-campus and remote students and faculty and also to increase ITs presence in community programs and distance learning and research.
