About this Course

The Certificate in Applied Building Information Modelling and Management is a four-module, 30 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 technology such as Autodesk Revit, Navisworks, Recap 360, BIM 360 Glue and BIM 360 Field 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 and the subsequent Certificate in Strategic Building Information Modelling Management.

Entry Requirements

Minimum of a level 7 in Architecture, Construction or Engineering discipline and successful completion of a minimum 15 credit Level 7 programme in BIM Technologies (e.g. the CIT SPA Certificate in Building Information Modelling Technologies or equivalent programme from other HEI providers) and successful completion of a minimum 15 credit Level 7 programme in BIM Design (eg the CIT SPA Certificate in Building Information Modelling Design 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. CIT’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.
