An advanced education programme on BIM

The objective of BIM A+ is to offer an advanced education programme on BIM integrated design, construction and operation processes, with a strong focus on the collaborative practices that are the cornerstone of such integration.

The Master combines the diversity of expertise at leading European universities in the relevant fields, offering education oriented to a multidisciplinary understanding of virtual construction through the involvement of experts from complementary fields (engineers, architects, programmers and others). Students gain top level knowledge on BIM in a research-oriented environment, with close cooperation with the industry and with a strong focus on problem solving.

The course will combine the recent advances in research and development with practical activities applications. After successful completion of the BIM A+ a student will gain competences to compete in a highly demanding market as a BIM Manager/Coordinator/Specialist. Furthermore, students may consider engaging in a further degree of studies towards (PhD) research on the BIM proficiency level.
