Key Course Facts

Course Description

Our Construction Project Management with Building Information Modelling (BIM) MSc programme combines our heritage in teaching Construction Management with our world-leading research in building performance, simulation and information management.

This programme is tailored for construction professionals focusing on an increasingly important area for the industry as it undergoes a digital transformation. It combines the technical and managerial sides of the discipline while providing a digital approach to construction project processes and challenges using digital tools, platforms and underlying processes within BIM.

This programme differs from our other construction programmes by uniquely including elements of building modelling and simulation. You will take core modules in project management and BIM, as well as a wide range of specialised optional modules in management and simulation that will prepare you for your future career within an advancing construction industry in the digital age.

The School of Architecture, Building and Civil Engineering is one of four Royal Academy of Engineering Centres of Excellence in Sustainable Building Design, and one of the most highly funded built environment groups by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC). The School hosts the National Facility for Infrastructure Construction (N-FIC), funded by the UK Collaboratorium for Research in Infrastructure & Cities (UKCRIC). We also house Building and Industrial Services Pipework Academy (BISPA), which is a collaboration with global steel manufacturer Tata Steel and the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE). This uniquely holistic view of construction makes it best placed for developing graduates that meet the increasing demands of the sector.

We have recently invested £6 million in building expansion and development, which includes new dedicated study areas and computer resources. Our students benefit from access to our excellent facilities, including our 3,000m2 laboratory and one of the fastest high-performance computing clusters in the UK.
