Specialist Diploma in Building Information Modelling
Building Information Modelling (BIM) has become one of the most exciting developments in the building and construction industry in recent years. As an integrated design and documentation tool used to enhance communication and collaboration among all the project stakeholders, BIM has already begun changing the way architects, engineers, contractors and building owners work together. With strategic implementation, BIM will significantly improve the design and construction process through more integrated project coordination. BIM has also been identified as one of the key technologies to be adopted under BCA’s S$250-million Construction Productivity and Capability Fund (CPCF) to help the local construction industry improve productivity and enhance its capability.
The Specialist Diploma in Building Information Modeling (BIM) aims to impart in-depth knowledge on BIM fundamentals and develop strategic skills for BIM project planning and implementation. It will focus on BIM applications for effective design analysis, productive design and construction coordination and holistic facility management. BIM standards and guidelines as well as BIM project case studies will also be included in this course.
Upon graduation, participants can look forward to career opportunities as BIM Project Coordinators, BIM Modelers/Operators, BIM Consultants/ Specialists, and BIM Managers.
The Specialist Diploma in BIM is a 5-month part-time programme. The objectives of this programme are:
To equip participants with fundamental knowledge for the adoption of BIM including the skill-sets required for the desired change to processes in the building lifecycle;
To familiarize participants with BIM standards, guidelines and strategies for BIM project planning and implementation; and
To equip participants with relevant skill-sets to use BIM for design analysis and project coordination among different parties and disciplines
Who Should Attend
This Specialist Diploma Programme is designed for the upgrading of technical personnel, professionals, and CAD managers/ executives who are keen to enhance their skill-sets and implementation strategies for employing BIM for more effective design analysis and project coordination. Potential participants include designers, consultants, contractors, project coordinators, project managers, CAD/BIM managers, operators, draftspersons and BIM modelers.
