Course Introduction

The course is specifically aimed at experienced professionals who will be expected to manage BIM projects.

BIM is a process involving the structured sharing and coordination of digital and non-digital information about a building project throughout its entire lifecycle, from design to procurement, construction and operation and management stage, all the way through to demolishment. Although there are no exams, you will be assessed on your thesis and other coursework, including design projects, case study critical analysis reports, presentations and your contribution to the course e-journal, which could include conference papers.

Graduates from this course will be qualified and expected to take on a managerial role in Business Information Modelling construction projects either on a technical, operational or strategic level within an organisation. Examples are Model managers, BIM coordinators, BIM managers and BIM directors from any stakeholder's side whether the consultant, contractor, client etc. Graduates will have highly specialised technical, analytical and collaborative operational and strategic decision-making skills that are much sought after qualities due to the novelty of the area of concern worldwide. The course content is enriched by keeping industrial engagement and collaboration active, and the availability of sponsored projects. This will help reveal current opportunities and future trends in relevant employment sectors. Students can also exit with PGCert and PGDip awards.
