Ahmad Hadavi

Professor Ahmad Hadavi has been named a fellow by the American Society of Civil Engineers. Hadavi is the deputy director of the Master of Science in Project Management program and a Clinical Professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. 

“It is an honor to be recognized by American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) as a Fellow in the organization,” he said.  

As a practicing professional engineer, Hadavi has developed a strong interest in the diverse problems associated with the repair and upgrade of American infrastructure, as well as the related challenge of preparing qualified professionals to assume project management roles as successors to the rapidly retiring workforce within the built environment sector.  

These drivers have propelled him to channel his varied talents into the development and operations of Northwestern’s Master of Science in Project Management and Master of Science in Executive Management for design and construction programs. In addition to his work in the administration of these programs, Hadavi has maintained an ongoing research program and published several technical papers. His paper “From BIM to Extended Reality in AEC Industry,” which was published in 2020, is a top-cited article in the Journal of Automation in Construction.  

Committed to service in the industry and academia, Hadavi is a member of the ASCE Construction Research Council, an evaluator for the Accrediting Council for Continuing Education & Training (ACCET), and a program reviewer for ABET. He has also served as a panelist during the review of proposals for the National Science Foundation and has lent his expertise as a peer reviewer for several journals and conference proceedings, including the ASCE Journal of Construction Engineering and Management, the ASCE Journal of Management in Engineering, and the Journal of Construction Management and Economics.
