Course content

The postgraduate programmes in Building Information Modelling (BIM) reflect the growing need for design and construction professionals with skills in this rapidly emerging construction approach. The 2011 Government Construction Strategy stated that Building Information Modelling (BIM) was to be adopted and utilised on all centrally procured public projects by 2016. Since then the uptake of BIM has been significant across the entire built environment sector.

The aim of these courses is to equip students with high-level knowledge and understanding of processes, tools and techniques of implementing BIM in today’s global construction industry. Students will not only develop a comprehension of how the associated digital tools can be implemented through use of prevailing standards and protocols, but also how implementation can be managed within the business context of the AEC sector.
