This is a multidisciplinary course that aims to develop the knowledge, practical, and personal skills of graduates to work in the Architecture/Engineering/Construction (AEC) industry and to develop further research skills related to AEC fields. The course enables practitioners to gain access to a theoretical base and to appraise current and future strategies in Advanced Construction Technologies and Building Information Modelling.
Students will take taught modules and a group project in the first two semesters. MSc students then complete a dissertation project in a third semester. Areas explored in the modules include: principles and practices of Advanced Construction Technologies in the architecture/engineering/construction industry; new trends related to digital construction, Building Information Modelling, and construction technology; sustainability; facilities management; construction management (processes, people, procurement); project management (planning, financing, risk).
You can exit at the end of 8 months with PgCert Advanced Construction Technologies and BIM.
You can exit at the end of 9 months with a PgDip Advanced Construction Technologies and BIM.
A first or second-class Honours degree (or equivalent) in Architecture, Engineering, Project management, or Quantity Surveying.
