The Certificate in Virtual Construction for Construction Management is provided in response to the needs of the construction industry. A Building Information Model or BIM provides the contractor with the ability to analyze, in a collaborative digital environment, a facility’s key physical and functional attributes before breaking ground. The BIM can improve the entire process from bidding, planning, controlling and commissioning.
The program is intended for individuals who have completed certificates or degrees in construction management or have work experience in construction management, estimating, scheduling, coordination and project supervision.
To meet the needs of working adults, courses are offered in the evenings. The curriculum introduces students to BIM tools and platforms, basic and intermediate modeling, project coordination using BIM tools and platforms and estimation and scheduling with BIM.
