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. Students who complete the PGCert will have a specific and relevant qualification in the field of BIM, which is currently of high importance for the industry. They will have the opportunity to further their study and progress to the MSc CAD for Construction if they desire. We pride ourselves on a very high employability rate for our postgraduate students - potential employment opportunities for graduates include: architectural and interior design practices; civil engineering practices; local authorities; environmental management agencies; space-planning and office furniture companies; and design consultancies.

At the end of this course you, the student, will be able to: Demonstrate a systematic understanding and critical awareness of current and emerging CAD technologies in relation to the construction industry. Select and effectively implement an appropriate range of advanced software tools in order to produce architectural design and construction documentation including drawings, visualizations and presentations. Demonstrate high level skills and abilities to make use of generic and bespoke software tools, solving complex design problems and developing appropriate solutions for presentation to a range of audiences. Evaluate current research and scholarship within the general area of ICT for construction, critique current research methodologies and apply this knowledge to solve original problems.
