Course Summary

Why choose this course?

The postgraduate programmes in Building Information Modelling (BIM) reflect the growing need for design and construction professionals with skills in this rapidly emerging construction approach. The 2011 Government Construction Strategy stated that Building Information Modelling (BIM) was to be adopted and utilised on all centrally procured public projects by 2016. Since then the uptake of BIM has been significant across the entire built environment sector.

The aim of these courses is to equip students with high-level knowledge and understanding of processes, tools and techniques of implementing BIM in today’s global construction industry. Students will not only develop a comprehension of how the associated digital tools can be implemented through use of prevailing standards and protocols, but also how implementation can be managed within the business context of the AEC sector.

Career Paths

Students who complete the MSc BIM will have a specific and relevant qualification in the field of BIM, which is currently of high importance for the industry.

We pride ourselves on a very high employability rate for our postgraduate students with many of our students becoming BIM coordinators, BIM Managers, Digital Specialists and Digital Engineers. 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.

Modules

Building Information Modelling (BIM) is becoming increasingly used on renovation projects and in particular significant use of BIM for the modelling and renovation of heritage buildings within the UK and abroad. Drawing on research and emerging practice in the field, this module will use a combination of theory and practical work to understand the process of implementing BIM for renovation and in particular for use in projects that include heritage-based elements. The module will include the use of advanced and emerging technologies, software tools and prevailing standards to allow a deep understanding of the specific requirements of implementing BIM on these specialist projects.
