Course content

The philosophy of the Building Information Management course reflects the increasingly digital, multi-disciplinary and integrated nature of project delivery, influenced by the demand from governments and clients for greater efficiencies on construction projects. These efficiencies can be gained from more accurate prototyping, simulation, costing, planning, design, production and operation, and will be an output of sound information management and data input to Building Information Modelling (BIM) software.

The unique nature of Westminster's Building Information Management course is the focus on 'Management', which will create professionals who are able to manage the whole construction process and the information associated with this.

This course is ideal for those looking to gain a greater understanding of Building Information Management, who don't wish to study for the full Masters course. The course aims to provide a challenging, stimulating and professionally relevant course of study which is directly related to the effective management of construction projects. This course takes one year to study part-time. You will take modules totalling 60 credits as follows:

- Building Information Management and Integrated Practice (40 credits)
- Plus one option module from the MSc course
