Specialist Diploma in Building Information Modelling (SDBIM)

Event code: 74056



As building projects become more complex, Building Information Modelling (BIM) has become an important tool to help building professionals improve their work effectiveness and efficiency. As an integrated design, documentation and construction tool, the strategic implementation of BIM in building projects would enhance communication and multi-disciplinary collaboration among all the project stakeholders, significantly improving the design, construction, and operation processes, with productivity gains and returns.

You will have the flexibility to take the modular certificates in any order and at your own pace*. The certificates can be stacked up towards the Specialist Diploma.
*Maximum of 3 years to accumulate the certificates for an academic qualification.

  • BIM Proficiency: Equip participants with skills and knowledge in BIM, enabling them to effectively utilize BIM software for construction projects.
  • Project Collaboration and Coordination: Develop the ability to coordinate multidisciplinary project teams through the effective use of BIM, fostering seamless collaboration and communication.
  • BIM Implementation and Management: Enable participants to understand and implement BIM standards, protocols, and best practices, ensuring efficient BIM implementation within their organizations.
