Months of entry
This Masters course will equip you for the rapidly developing area of Building Information Modelling (BIM). If you work in the construction sector, this course will help you develop new skills and adapt your professional abilities to meet government requirements for BIM in publicly-procured projects.
The course emphasises the importance of sustainability, in line with the current environmental agenda. It addresses the use of the Code for Sustainable Homes and the Building Research Establishment’s Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM) within BIM technologies, along with the RICS Property Life Cycle, and Civil Engineering Environmental Quality Assessment and Awards Scheme (CEEQUAL).
The government’s chief construction adviser has indicated that BIM will become compulsory on publicly-procured projects in the UK from 2016. In future, there will be a demand for bidders and contractors on public building projects who can deliver and manage projects in this framework. This follows the international trend for large clients and government agencies that endorse the use of BIM.
