Building Information Modelling (BIM) teaching has been added to the curriculum of Civil Engineering courses in the United Kingdom relatively recently. The BIM Academic Forum reported in 2013 on a general way to implement BIM teaching. Further work specified Level 6 topics. However, the importance of each of these topics in relation to the structures and highways disciplines was not fully researched. This paper examines, from a BAF perspective, the topics and their importance to the specialisms. It shows that all BIM topics are more important to students specialising in structures than those in highways. It further indicates that both streams need to concentrate on BIM roles, BIM data maturity principles, and Collaboration tools. Big Data can be mentioned but can be minimised.
