MPM Launches Strategic Alliance with builtworlds

Northwestern MPM and EMDC are launching a strategic alliance with BuiltWorlds, a community and network for forward-thinking leaders in the built environment (architecture, engineering, construction, real estate, and other buildings and infrastructure-related industries).

As an association partner of BuiltWorlds, Northwestern MPM and EMDC will be a sponsor and key participant of four BuiltWorlds conferences, including Future Workforce in December, Machines in May 2018, Projects in June 2018, and Buildings 2.0 in July 2018. MPM Associate Director and Civil Engineering Professor Ahmad Hadavi will be a panelist at the Future Workforce conference.

“We are excited to strengthen our relationship with Northwestern’s MPM and EMDC programs,” said Jed Levenstein, BuiltWorlds Director of Operations. “We expect to learn a lot from their students and faculty as they attend our events and engage with our community. Our community will no doubt share invaluable real world insights and experiences from the field in return.”

MPM statement on 2017 Natural Disasters

The devastation caused by hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria and the earthquakes in Mexico has created tremendous pain and hardship for the people of the Gulf Coast, Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, Dominica, St. Martin, Barbuda, Mexico, and throughout the Caribbean. We know these catastrophic events will affect communities for years to come as people struggle to rebuild and restore what was lost.

The MPM program faculty and staff are deeply saddened to learn of the loss of life and devastation from these events and we send our thoughts and prayers to our many alumni, their family and friends, and all those whose lives have been impacted. We join with people and organizations across the globe and encourage MPM students, faculty, staff, alumni, and friends to support the ongoing relief efforts. One credible source for donations is Charity Navigator, which offers information about different organizations and ways to contribute.

We welcome any information that our alumni would like to share and are ready to help in any way that we can.


The MPM program creates newsletters on a quarterly basis. Please continue to send us your news and updates so that we can include it in our next edition. Our newsletter is a great opportunity to stay up-to-date with the latest student, alumni, and event information.
