As reliance on the web in general and web search engines in particular expands, student interest in the domain of information retrieval is
increasing. In response to this increased interest, at the Illinois Institute of Technology, we recently extended our computer science
undergraduate curriculum to include an introductory course in information retrieval. Instead of simply understanding how to build
applications using information retrieval tools, our students build these tools and learn the relevant algorithms implemented in these tools.
