What is Architectural and Building Information Modelling (BIM) Technology?

Architectural and BIM Technology is an innovative approach to the integration of traditional architectural technologist skills-sets together with Building Information Modelling (BIM) processes and technologies  which are currently transforming the way in which construction projects are procured, managed and built. 

What is the BSc (Hons) in Architectural and Building Information Modelling (BIM) Technology?

This four year programme enables students to become architectural technologists with additional advanced skills in Building Information Technology (BIM).  Students will become competent in the ‘science of building’ and the production of construction drawings and specifications for complex building types, allowing them to become technical members of construction design teams.

Student will also acquire an advanced knowledge in the application of BIM methodology which is an integrated collaborative approach for building project delivery between the relevant professionals, i.e. engineers, quantity surveyors, architectural professions and the building contractor. 

The inclusion of an Industrial Placement (work experience) module and modules in Project Management, Property Pathology and Refurbishment, Value Engineering and Construction Collaboration Technologies, will also enable the graduate to become an interdisciplinary practitioner within the construction industry.

Special/Unique features:

The BSc (Hons) in Architectural and Building Information Modelling (BIM) Technology is the only undergraduate programme in Ireland promoting BIM at its core.
