Incorporating Building Information Modelling learning on BSc(Hons) Quantity Surveying & Commercial Management programme at Ulster University

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

Building Information Modelling (BIM) is beginning to have a significant impact on the role of the quantity surveyor in consultancy and the commercial manager in the contracting sector. This will create many challenges for both, but will also provide opportunities to diversify and innovate that will ultimately lead to major changes in the roles. The aim of this paper will be to highlight the relevance of BIM to the quantity surveying and commercial management professions. It is imperative therefore, that the education of QS students embraces and embeds BIM within the curriculum and a detailed case study of how Ulster University has embedded BIM within the programme will be provided. This will illustrate how BIM is being taught both as a theoretical concept and subject and also as a practical skill to ensure that graduates entering the workplace can understand and also utilise BIM in practice. The presentation will also outline how members of the course lecturing team through their PhD research and academic enterprise will facilitate further embedding of BIM in the course curriculum
