University of Westminster

Course Introduction

The philosophy of this 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 course focuses 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 BIM, who do not wish to study for the full Master's 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.
