About

Our MSc Building and Infrastructure Information Modelling (BIM) for Smart Engineering from Cardiff University will provide you with the necessary training, skills and hands-on experience to become successful in the dynamic and highly competitive fields of BIM and smart engineering.

Overview

Our MSc Building and Infrastructure Information Modelling (BIM) for Smart Engineering from Cardiff University aims to provide you with the necessary training, skills and hands-on experience to become successful in the dynamic and highly competitive fields of BIM and smart engineering, and to give you a distinct edge when applying for a career in industry or for a PhD studentship.

What you'll learn

The course will provide you with engineering oriented advanced BIM training, consolidate the related fundamental theory, strengthen your modelling and analysis skills and smart engineering knowledge, and enhance your future engineering competency and employability. It will build on your existing engineering knowledge and skills to deliver a comprehensive, flexible, robust and research led advanced BIM training package.

This course is based on the research strengths of the Building Information Modelling (BIM) group, which has been an established research group for over twenty years. 

Career prospects

The emergence of Building Information Modelling (BIM) has brought revolutionary changes to Architecture, Engineering and Construction / Operation (AEC/O) industry. Throughout the world, the race for BIM industry uptake has resulted in a shortage of critical resources and new skills in the construction area. There are significant demands coming from industry requiring qualified BIM graduates with an engineering perspective.

The MSc Building and Infrastructure Information Modelling (BIM) for Smart Engineering will provide you with career opportunities in the following areas:
