Building Information Modelling & Digital AEC - Cork

The underlining philosophy of the programme is the enhancement and deepening of research skills in the context of BIM and digitisation. In addition to learning and developing BIM and digitisation skills, the key aspect of the Masters, through the research project, is to strengthen the graduate’s ability to identify gaps in the current knowledge and areas of future research and to undertake this research to close this gap thereby developing the student’s ability to think strategically.

Entry requirements

Applicants should hold a minimum of a Level 8 in civil engineering, construction, architecture, architectural technology, building services engineering, or other cognate disciplines and relevant experience in the discipline of BIM either in the level 8 undergraduate programme or in practice.

Graduates of the Postgraduate Diploma in Applied BIM & Digital AEC are also eligible for entry to the programme (holders of the Postgraduate Diploma will be required to relinquish the Diploma prior to receiving the Master of Science award).
