The Building Information Management (BIM) philosophy reflects not just the changing nature of project delivery, which is increasingly digital, multi-disciplinary and integrated, but also the demand from governments and clients for greater efficiencies on construction projects. These efficiencies can be gained from more accurate prototyping, simulation, costing, planning, design, production and operation, and will be an output of sound information management and data input to BIM software.
The future construction professional will not only require knowledge and understanding of building information management, but will also be part of an integrated project team that will take a project from inception to completion. Collaborative working and co-ordinated information exchange will increase the efficiency of project delivery and asset performance, leading to better sustainability over the building lifecycle and a satisfied client.
You will typically possess a minimum second-class honours degree in a cognate subject area (such as construction, surveying, architecture, civil engineering) and be in related employment in a professional or managerial capacity. Alternatively, you may hold membership of a recognised construction-related professional body achieved through examinations and/or professional interview, together with experience in a professional or managerial capacity in a construction-related post.
Exceptionally, consideration will be given to mature applicants who lack standard qualifications but have significant professional or managerial experience in a construction-related post. Such applicants will be interviewed prior to admission and will be expected to demonstrate the commitment and intellectual capacity to study at postgraduate level.
In all cases, it is a requirement that applicants can speak, write and comprehend English fluently. Applicants whose mother-tongue is not English are normally required to provide evidence of English language competency equivalent to a score of at least 6.5 under the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) including a minimum of 6.0 in each component.
This course is aimed at graduates who are, or have been, in construction-related employment who aspire to senior positions in the construction industry.
