In today’s tough economic climate the construction industry faces ever more challenges to become more efficient and integrated. At the forefront of the response to such challenges is the increasing use of Building Information Modelling (BIM). Building Information Modelling is a comprehensive, integrated and efficient approach to design and construction that builds on both architectural knowledge and technological progress. By the drafting, analysis and use of intelligent models, BIM drives the production of more accurate and effective building plans.
This MSc Building Information Modelling (BIM) programme has been developed for students or practitioners from architecture, engineering or construction professions seeking to develop skills in the theory and practice of BIM in design and construction.
The teaching is primarily research led supplemented by lectures, seminars and projects from leading professionals and researchers in the field.
