This course is taught by a mixture of academic staff and industrial practitioners, bringing real world experiences into the classroom. ABOUT YOU You could be: a civil / structural engineer, an architect, M&E Services Engineer, (or any other construction related discipline). You will have a keen interest in BIM and digital construction. You may already have experience using BIM – hands on experience of BIM is not necessary for starting the course, but it can be useful. COURSE CONTENT The course’s primary focus is on project management using the building information modelling process. This will give you the chance to take your career forward - from a management viewpoint, not just in construction, but in other sectors as well. We teach the principles of project management, while using building information modelling. THE ENVIRONMENT You'll be in a class of around 30 if you're a full-time student, alongside people from places like India, Nigeria, China, Vietnam and Egypt, , as well as from the UK, Ireland and Europe. Our teaching starts in the afternoon as we know some of you will need to take time off work to attend classes. You'll have the McClay Library and the beautiful new Graduate School at your disposal as well as a dedicated base room and computer lab in the Elmwood building. WHAT YOU'LL GET UP TO The course is all about balancing theory and practice – a mixture of hands-on building, manipulation and management of models, as well as consideration of the higher level analytical and critical thinking skills that come with Masters level education. ACADEMIC LITERACY MODULE An optional, complementary module for non-native speakers of English. Designed to support English language and academic skills development with a focus on specific academic skills related to the students' area of study.
