"Working with BuiltWorlds for my Capstone Senior Design project was a pleasure. BuiltWorlds respected our design choices and skills as Mechanical Engineers all while supporting us along the way. They were always very friendly and excited to see where our project went. It was the perfect combination of interest and hands off trust. I never felt micromanaged, and the environment they create was perfect to allow us to flourish."

Past Initiatives

The ASCE (American Society of Civil Engineers) National Concrete Canoe Competition (NCCC) provides students with a practical application of the engineering principles they learn in the classroom, along with important team and project management skills they will need in their careers. The event challenges the students' knowledge, creativity and stamina, while showcasing the versatility and durability of concrete as a building material.


"Working with BuiltWorlds has afforded our organization the opportunity to actively engage with others in our profession and easily disseminate information on projects we are working on. Members of the BuiltWorlds team were always easy to contact and quickly became important members of our family as well. If given the opportunity again, I would work with BuiltWorlds in a heartbeat!"
-Matthew Troemner, Illinois Institute of Technology
