Building Information Management Postgraduate Diploma Part Time - Postgrado en Gestión de la Información en Construcción
The Building Information Management Postgraduate Certificate course is ideal for those looking to gain a greater understanding of Building Information Management, who don´t wish to study for the full Masters course.
The philosophy of the Building Information Management course reflects the increasingly digital, multi-disciplinary and integrated nature of project delivery, influenced by the demand from governments and clients for greater efficiencies on construction projects. These efficiencies can be gained from more accurate prototyping, simulation, costing, planning, design, production and operation, and will be an output of sound information management and data input to Building Information Modelling (BIM) software.
The unique nature of Westminster´s Building Information Management courses is the focus on ´Management´, which will create professionals who are able to manage the whole construction process and the information associated with this.
Applicants to the part-time course should have a minimum Second Class Honours degree in a related subject area and be in, or have been in, relevant employment in a professional or managerial capacity in a construction related post.
Alternatively, you may hold membership of a recognised construction-related professional body achieved through examinations and/ or professional interview, and have professional or managerial experience in a construction-related post. Exceptionally, consideration will be given to applicants who lack standard qualifications but have significant relevant professional or managerial experience.
If your first language is not English you will need an IELTS score of 6.5.
You will take modules totalling 60 credits as follows:
Building Information Management and Integrated Practice (40 Credits)
Plus one option module from the Building Information Management MSc course
This course is aimed at graduates who are, or have been, in construction-related employment who aspire to senior positions in the construction industry.
Enhancing students´ employability and industry connections is a key aim of the course. In 2013 Westminster ran Project Intermission, in partnership with industry mentors DMA Architects, Studio Klaschka and Gardiner & Theobald. Students from various built environment disciplines worked collaboratively on a ´real´ project for a ´real´ client, with input from industry practitioners, using cutting-edge Building Information Modelling (BIM) technologies. From this project, construction student Kevin Hernandez secured a work placement with AECOM. Project Intermission was also shortlisted for a CIOB International Innovation and Research Award 2013.
