Why this postgraduate course?
BIM (Building Information Modeling) is taking root at a rapid pace internationally. This means an increasingly higher level of maturity is required. When a client asks for BIM, they do not simply want models with information about what they are promoting or operating. What they want is for their suppliers, whether they are project drafters, contractors or managers, to use this methodology to offer a product with higher quality, more added value and less risks. This demand means that all professionals in the sector must acquire new skills to complement the roles they are currently engaged in.

Competence in BIM also requires specialisation. For this reason, our postgraduate programme on Open BIM in Modelling, Calculation and Simulation offers four different specialist fields for in-depth study of the particular aspects of each discipline while maintaining a holistic vision. Our innovative learning methodology enables the various specialist fields to interact with each other while focusing on their own content.

Our programme provides offers comprehensive training focused on the instrumental aspects of BIM from the perspective of modelling and advanced information management, which is highly valued by the professional market. In fact, student employability is 100%.
Aims
  • To understand BIM methodology and know how to apply it.
  • To be able to generate useful information models for management of the asset in all its phases.
  • To be able to use specific instruments for calculation and simulation based on models.
  • To be able to calculate the cost of executing a project.
  • To effectively use the leading software tools in the market.
  • To take advantage of new job opportunities that are emerging around the process of adopting BIM at a global level.
  • To improve competitiveness in the construction sector.
Who is it for?
This programme is aimed at people who already work in companies in the construction sector, or those who intend to do so in the near future. It is also suitable for professionals wishing to refocus their profile or undertake their own business project.
  • Specialisation in Building
    • Architects.
    • Building engineers, quantity surveyors and/or surveyors.
    • Contractors.
    • Construction Managers.
