The Sustainable Building Information Management programme offered by Jönköping University aims to develop the knowledge, skills and experience needed to use and manage modern digital technologies, for example BIM and GIS in the built environment sector to create sustainable values. 

About

The built environment sector is the largest single sector in most countries. The sector is responsible for the realisation of the complex and very individualised products that make up the built environment, i.e. buildings, lighting systems, roads and water and sewer networks. Digitalisation in the built environment has entailed major developments and new applications.

There is a need for engineers who have specialist knowledge concerning Building Information Management (BIM) and Geographic Information Systems (GIS), and the implementation of these technologies in the product realisation process. Graduates from the programme will support businesses and organisations in the built environment sector to integrate the steps in the product and production chain as well as contribute with the expertise needed for companies to remain competitive on both local and global basis.

After graduation

After completing the Sustainable Building Information Management programme offered by Jönköping University, you will be qualified for positions with companies in need of experts who can use and manage modern computing and information technology like BIM and GIS in the built environment sector.

The knowledge received in the programme will enhance the careers of existing professionals and create new career paths for young professionals, for example as a BIM engineer, BIM coordinator and BIM manager. Many of these roles did not exist until recently, but are now considered key positions in many companies.
