The Certificate in Strategic Building Information Modelling (BIM) Management is a three-module, 15 credit, part-time programme. This programme provides an opportunity for architectural, engineering and construction degree graduates, or qualifying students, to acquire effective skills and knowledge in the strategic application of Building Information Modelling (BIM) methodologies and technologies within a multidisciplinary and collaborative approach to building design and construction. Participants will gain experience in using effective thinking strategies within the context of current industry standards and technologies (e.g. BIM 360, Autodesk Revit, Navisworks, Recap 360, Dynamo).
Minimum of a level 7 in Architecture, Construction or Engineering discipline and successful completion of a foundation programme in BIM Technologies (eg the CIT SPA Certificate in Building Information Modelling Technologies or equivalent programme from other HEI providers). Those with equivalent relevant work experience will also be considered on a case basis.
For over 20 years, CIT has committed resources to the support of students undertaking the RPL pathway. CITâ€™s RPL policy is supported by rigorous quality assurance mechanisms and on-going staff development. RPL policy extends to all courses at all levels and in all disciplines. In CIT RPL can be used to gain entry or advanced entry to a programme, gain exemptions from elements of a programme or gain a full award on the framework. If the situation arises where students do not meet the standard academic entry requirements but have appropriate equivalent learning they will be supported in preparing a case for consideration for entry to a programme which will be academically assessed.
The Certificate in Strategic Building Information Modelling (BIM) Management is a three-module, 15 credit, part-time programme. This programme provides an opportunity for architectural, engineering and construction degree graduates, or qualifying students, to acquire effective skills and knowledge in the strategic application of Building Information Modelling (BIM) methodologies and technologies within a multidisciplinary and collaborative approach to building design and construction. Participants will gain experience in using industry-standard plaform and cloud based technology for Information Model Authoring, Collaborative Information Management and Immersive Design Experiences such as Autodesk BIM360, Revit, Navisworks, Dynamo, Enscape or other equivalent software. The programme is delivered by academic staff involved in BIM research combined with industry professionals charged with the delivery of BIM projects in Ireland and abroad. Overall, this award will enhance employment prospects where there is an ever-increasing skills need both nationally and internationally. The programme will build on participants existing experience of the Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) sector and introduce experience in working within a collaborative environment and enabled by the latest technological advances which support industry. This programme will also offer a natural steppingstone in the lifelong learning journey of those who have previously completed the well-established CIT Certificate in Building Information Modelling Technologies programme, which now has over 100 graduates.
The AEC industry is moving towards a situation where BIM is becoming an essential requirement internationally, thereby, creating a clear need for professionals with appropriate process and technology skills. This programme will enable architects, designers and design/project/ construction/facility managers to specialise in the use of BIM and the implementation of integrated design and delivery. Upon completion, graduates will have developed skills and knowledge in a highly advanced specialism and the expertise gained is at the forefront of industry requirements. The technical and reflective skills gained will be of immediate advantage to employers in construction, engineering and design roles across the built environment.
Graduates of the programme will target employment across the Architectural, Engineering and Construction sector where there is an on-going national demand for skilled personnel at different levels and most specifically in the following sectors:
Leveraging ICT advancements within the sector in particular Building Information Modelling (BIM);
Lean design and construction process improvement techniques.
