Integrated Building Information Management (BIM)

This degree is for those already involved, or hoping to become involved, in the procurement and management of built assets from a variety of professional disciplines, as it considers the implication of information management from all sides of the industry. The construction industry is continually evolving and the integration of building information throughout the lifecycle of an asset is becoming more important. Such integration is dependent on a truly collaborative approach to design, cost, construct and maintenance of buildings and infrastructure. This programme will encourage you to question your current thinking and practices, and become more innovative and creative in solving unique problems. You will gain the knowledge and skills to lead information management throughout the life cycle of a project and have an understanding of the implications of decisions made via integrated project delivery. This will be achieved via a stimulating and challenging study of theory, concepts and practical application in the field; all designed to ensure you graduate as a self-reliant, versatile, enterprising and competent building information manager.
