Graduate Diploma in Building Information Modelling (Online)
This course is designed for a range of professionals in built environment design and associated industries. This course seeks to develop Building Information Modelling(BIM) skills with an explicit focus on practical application and problem-solving in the context of the BIM environment. Students will undertake units which focus on the philosophies, principles, techniques and possibilities of collaborative processes vital to the success of the design process within the context of BIM across multiple disciplines.
There are two main components to the course which simulate, real-time building phases that occur in the construction industries within a collaborative process.
