The Living Lab allows students to apply, networking, security, database, website and application development concepts and techniques learned from prior CIT courses to service, internal and/or external projects. The Living Lab emulates an industry IT department in which students work on one or more projects as part of an IT team.
The mission of the Living Lab is to provide an experiential and service IT learning environment for
students at IUPUI. By presenting students with a real production IT environment the students will be
able to contribute to their place of work immediately upon graduation. Students will solve IT problems
with little or no supervision while meeting the business standards of managing, documenting and reporting
their work in a timely manner with weekly status reports.
The vision of the Living Lab is to become the premier provider of experiential and service learning
in the United States.
