Why study The Higher Diploma in Engineering in Building Information Modelling
In the context of construction, BIM is the process of delivering and operating built assets using well-structured digital information that all the necessary parties have access to. It is a way of working, rather than a physical object or an entity.
Operating in this way – often referred to as 'working in a BIM environment' – requires all parties to collaborate and share the information they create in a mutually accessible online space known as a Common Data Environment or CDE. This way, everyone who needs to access the information can get it. That collection of data is known as an 'information model'. Information models can be used to inform all stages of a built asset's lifecycle; from inception, right through to operation and renewal.
The H.Dip in BIM at GMIT is a multi-disciplinary programme which is open to construction professionals and others who already have a relevant Level 7 or Level 8 qualification in a cognate area. This Programme has been designed to rapidly up-skill construction professionals and others in BIM technologies and processes to meet industry demand.
The complete course will be delivered on two evenings per week over one academic year.
