What is the programme about?
The programme is aimed at graduates and professionals who require specialist Building Information Modelling (BIM) and Construction Project Management and leadership skills to manage these functions within a Built Environment setting. For new graduate entrants to the sector it will provide a competitive edge as they embark on a career in this sector. For professionals who are already working in the area and who may not have such a formal qualification it will provide a skillset to further develop their careers.
The programme will provide an upskilling opportunity for those professionals engaged within the Built Environment sector and each module addresses a managerial skills deficit identified within the construction sector presently.
The aims of this programme are to:
• Provide the learner with specialised knowledge in the area of construction project management;
• Focus the learner on the key issues pertaining to the role of the construction project manager;
• Equip the learner with the requisite knowledge and tools to ensure that information is organized and controlled during the construction procurement process and throughout the project lifecycle based on the exploitation and use of BIM models and tools;
• Allow the learner to build a comprehensive understanding of the methods of strategic analysis to produce appropriate strategic options for construction organisations.
