Course Description

Building Information Modelling & Management - Applied

The programme aims to provide an educational setting in which to develop the ability to initiate and lead the holistic and integrated process of design, construction, and life-cycle management through the medium of BIM, centred on the collaborative and multi-disciplinary building design process. It will provide experienced built environment professionals and recent Level 8 graduates with an additional skill set centred on Building Information Modelling & Management, which will enable employment as BIM professionals in building design practices and the construction industry.

This is a multidisciplinary specialisation programme to enable graduates of a range of Engineering and Built Environment disciplines to acquire a qualification in applied Building Information Modelling & Management at Postgraduate Certificate, Diploma and Masters levels. The programme is managed in the School of Multidisciplinary Technologies (SMDT) but is delivered by the complete range of domain-specific BIM experts from across the schools of the College of Engineering and Built Environment. An intake of 60 students across the disciplines of architecture, engineering, surveying (quantity and geomatics), architectural technology, construction management and facilities management is planned, thus creating an industry-replicating, multidisciplinary environment.

Who Should Apply?
The programme is open to graduates of building design and construction-related programmes, including architects, engineers, surveyors (quantity, geomatics and property), architectural technologists, construction managers and facilities managers. Graduates of related discipline areas with appropriate experience are encouraged to apply.
