2017 Industry Night

Inside Our Program
Industry Night

Northwestern University's Master of Engineering Management (MEM) Program launched an annual Industry Night which recognizes and establishes community among the students, alumni and companies who value the importance of education at the intersection of engineering and business.

Northwestern University founded the first MEM Program over 40 years ago when a visionary professor, Al Rubenstein, created a master’s program in the McCormick School of Engineering to supply future leaders for Chicago’s manufacturing companies. He believed that engineers, whom he saw as the most adept innovators and problem-solvers, should lead organizations but they would first need to supplement their engineering background with basic business knowledge and quantitative decision-making skills.

Industry Night 2020

MEM hosted its 6th Annual Industry Night on Thursday, January 16, 2020, at the James L. Allen Center on Northwestern's Evanston Campus. MEM students, alumni, faculty, and industry guests heard from Dr. Helen Sun, the Chief Technology Officer (CTO) at STATS Perform, as the keynote speaker.

Keynote: AI in Sports

Dr. Sun's talk focused on how AI is changing the way sports are viewed, understood, and played.
