ABOUT

Overview

The rapid evolution of digital technologies is coinciding with a set of economical, societal and environmental challenges facing architects and engineers in the current AEC (Architecture, Engineering and Construction) industry. To respond, a wide range of digital technologies and methods in design and construction are emerging that have transitional impact on the way practitioners create, communicate and interact. These transitions are blurring lines between the different disciplines within the AEC industry and urging more collaborative and integrated work throughout the design, construction and operational stages of building projects. Building Information Modelling (BIM) is emerging as a new method, process and technology to automate information flow across disciplines, and facilitate collaboration, integration and coordination throughout a project lifecycle.

Through a combination of formal lectures, seminars, presentations, tutorials and group-based learning sessions and modules guided and delivered by academic staff, researchers and leading practitioners from the AEC industry, the programme will introduce you to the theoretical, methodological, practical and technological aspects of BIM, and the innovative tools, technologies and methods that are driving the digital transformation in the contemporary AEC industry. You will be able to investigate the transitional impact of BIM on the project delivery throughout its lifecycle, in order to understand the true potential of BIM on project, organisational and industrial levels, and the limitation and challenges that confront practitioners when implementing BIM. Furthermore, you will have the opportunity to undertake team-based tasks and activities similar to those which BIM specialists would complete in real practice, such as communicating the benefits and challenges of BIM on a project and on organisation levels; and developing BIM implementation plans and strategies based on thorough understanding of the national and international BIM standards.

You will be introduced to various research methods and techniques that will enable you to undertake various types of research in order to critically understand the impact and limitations of BIM in its real-life context; examine the interoperability between various BIM software; investigate the tools, methodologies and incentives that are driving the digital transformation in architecture and construction; and scrutinise the role of BIM technologies and methods in facilitating design coordination and supporting sustainable design and energy-efficient solutions throughout project stages.

The programme will allow you to broadly and deeply experience the various BIM software such as design authoring tools (for example, Revit, ArchiCAD, Rhino etc.,) and design coordination and clash detection tools (for example Navisworks and Solibri). In addition, the programme will offer you the opportunity to immerse yourself in a plethora of software and hardware technologies, such as algorithmic and parametric modelling, sustainable environmental design software, virtual reality systems, 3D visualisation and animation software, laser cutting, 3D printing, and robotic fabrication; and introduce you to various related concepts such as common data environments and cloud-based systems, big data, smart cities, digital twins and ‘Internet of Things’, and machine learning and artificial intelligence. All of these concepts will enable you to understand the wider context of BIM and the future opportunities of its implementation in the AEC industry and beyond.
