About this Course

The construction industry is facing unprecedented change that is being driven by digital transformation. This course focuses strategically on these changes and is designed to equip graduates with the essential skills to act as leaders in the digital construction environment both in the construction and civil engineering sectors.
This programme aims to provide extensive knowledge in the fields of BIM and integrated design and project delivery approaches to deliver better whole life value through digital built environments.
BIM is a process involving the structured sharing and coordination of digital and non-digital information about a building project throughout its entire life cycle, from design to procurement, construction operation and management stage, all the way through to decommissioning.
There is a shortage of well qualified graduates who are capable of the efficient coordination of processes, workflows, people, assets and technology that BIM requires. Through an extensive engagement with our industrial support base we quantified this requirement for graduates. We have designed the programme to specifically equip graduates with the skill-sets to act as BIM leaders in a variety of industry sub-sectors, including Civil Engineering, and Commercial Construction for both publicly and privately funded projects. The modules on the programme include BIM Fundamentals, BIM Collaboration, BIM Infrastructure and BIM Project, each specifically designed to enable the graduate to master this innovative new approach to project design, construction, and management.
The programme will be delivered in a blended format, where students will study online, supported through our extensive e-learning facilities. In addition, students will take part in a workshop week each semester to allow the essential collaborative element of the programme achieve its full potential. This delivery structure will allow students to effectively and sustainable combine work and study, and achieve a qualification and skill set that will truly enhance their own capability and the organisations they serve.
