Course content

The construction sector is a major part of the UK economy and any centrally procured project will require Building Information Modelling (BIM) compliance. Yet there is a shortage of well qualified graduates who are capable of the efficient coordination of processes, workflows, people, assets and technology that BIM requires. This Masters degree was designed to meet that demand.

BIM is a process involving the structured sharing and coordination of digital and non-digital information about a building project throughout its entire lifecycle, from design to procurement, construction and operation and management stage, all the way through to demolishment.

Middlesex University is the only institution in the UK to offer a work based Masters in this subject area and aims to produce practitioners with a qualification to be employed in a Management role in BIM projects. You will gain a critical awareness of contemporary BIM issues informed by technology, research and management skills in standard and unpredictable scenarios.

The course is specifically aimed at experienced professionals who will be expected to manage BIM projects. These will include people from the following sectors:

  • Architects
  • Architectural technologists
  • Construction and civil engineers
  • Mechanical, electrical and plumbing services (MEP) engineers
  • Heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) engineers
  • technicians, contractors, subcontractors, fabricators and manufacturers
  • Facilities and operations managers (FM & OM)
  • Quantity surveyors
Flexible study

Many students choosing to study MSc Building Information Modelling Management will be practitioners in full-time employment and this course has been designed to be flexible around your work and life commitments. You will be able to complete the course part-time through Distance Learning over two years. However, it's possible to complete the course in 12 months with the full-time study option, depending on how much time you can commit to the course.
