With changes in UK legislation and ever-growing technological advancements, our online Building Information Modelling (BIM) and Project Collaboration Masters programme is more relevant than ever. The construction sector is expanding at an exponential rate with digital collaboration being at the forefront of project management.

Building information modelling (BIM) is a key part of the Industrial Strategy: Construction 2025, aiming to increase productivity and collaboration through the use of digital technologies. It is a requirement that all public sector projects based in the United Kingdom will meet BIM Level 2.

The MSc Building Information Modelling and Project Collaboration (BIM) online degree has been developed specifically for Architects, Architectural Technologists, Design and Project Managers, Construction Managers, Civil Engineers and other construction professionals. You will be able to draw on the extensive industrial links of our academic staff within a University that has Centre of Excellence Status from the Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists (CIAT). Our on-campus version of this Masters course has attained, for the second year running, 100% student satisfaction (PTES 2018).

A Cutting Edge Approach to BIM Enabled Design

This programme’s approach to BIM-enabled integrated design is at the forefront of the industry, drawing on work-based and real-life projects using the latest technology coupled with continued mentoring and support from experienced academics who also practice in the industry.

You will be able to draw inspiration from – and take part in – industry-leading research and consultancy projects being undertaken by our lecturers, such as the work pioneered by Dr Boris Ceranic on projects such as SmartPoD and Retro-Tek. The quality of teaching staff is paralleled by our innovative blend of design management, sustainable design analysis and advanced modelling.
