The 2011 Government Construction Strategy has stated that Building Information Modelling (BIM) has to be adopted and utilised on all public projects by 2016. The aim of this course is to develop students with high-level knowledge and understanding of BIM. This new approach is strategically important for the UK and International Construction Industry and throughout the course students will not only develop a comprehension of how the tools operate, but also how these can be implemented within the business context of the Architecture and Construction sectors.

What happens on the course?

Within this course you will study the following modules:

  • BIM Theory and Application
  • BIM for Integrated Project Delivery
  • Implementing and Managing BIM and CAD Systems
