Overview

ADVANCED DIPLOMA IN BUILDING INFORMATION MODELLING (BIM)
The digital economy has forever changed the way we build. With the need for an increased measure of safety to be in place. Building projects are only set to become more complex in achieving profitability and timeliness. Building Information Modelling (BIM) has become an important tool to help building professionals meet the project milestones.

Through this course, one can expect to:
• Develop core BIM competences to support integrated design and delivery approaches
• Practice BIM software and collaborative techniques
• Be equipped with the skills necessary to coordinate roles and responsibilities for the financial, environmental and social performance
• Kept abreast with the digital transformation practices impacting building projects today
