The new Building Information Modelling (BIM) Specialist course is aimed at professionals and graduates
Aston University is offering a new course to help upskill the design and construction sectors.
Building Information Modelling (BIM) Specialist is aimed at both professionals and recent graduates with experience of building design, construction and consultancy.
The Level 7 BIM course will allow students to obtain 15 academic credits which can contribute towards a relevant postgraduate qualification.
Students will be taught sector-relevant software skills, covering the current BIM ISO 19650 standards, processes and technologies.
Kenneth Park FCIOB, who is leading the course, said: “As there is an increased effort to reduce waste in the construction industry, BIM is becoming an increasingly important tool for professionals in the sector.
“It allows for collaboration, addressing supply chain inefficiencies, clashes and reworking, creating a more sustainable and efficient construction process throughout the project lifecycle.”
The course includes a mixture of on-campus and online learning and starts in September.
