    Open doors in your career

    In the future, building owners will require final documents in a BIM format. Many already do. At firms everywhere, everyone will require some level of knowledge on the processes and standards. For professionals and future professionals working in Architecture, Engineering, Construction and Management including Owners and Operators (AECOO), understanding Building Information Modeling and its international standards for exchanging project information and managing a project through its entire lifecycle are essential to preparing for the future and opening doors in your career.

    Practical applications

    Unlike most BIM-focused programs in Canada, this program focuses on the process not the software. It provides you with a comprehensive, higher-level understanding, preparing you to manage projects and work effectively within a cross-functional AECOO team. The BIM program was designed by very experienced industry experts who have been very involved in practical applications in BIM. It’s also connected to cutting-edge research in the field of BIM with its Special Topics course offerings. You will learn practical applications and all about up and coming areas in Canada and internationally.
