Who is this course aimed at?

The aim of this programme is to upskill an Architecture, Engineering or Construction graduate to be a skilled postgraduate with an understanding of the digitisation of Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC), Building Information Modelling (BIM) as well as the potential of digitisation in the delivery of Sustainable Energy Systems and Policies or Facility and Asset Management. The programme will focus on professionals originating from the AEC sector to enhance skills in BIM and Information Technology (IT) to address a current skills gap in the industry.


What skills will I learn?

The underlining philosophy of the programme is the enhancement and deepening of research skills in the context of BIM and digitisation. In addition to learning and developing BIM and digitisation skills, the key aspect of the Masters, through the research project, is to strengthen the graduate’s ability to identify gaps in the current knowledge and areas of future research and to undertake this research to close this gap thereby developing the student’s ability to think strategically.


What are the benefits of doing the course online?

Delivered exclusively online, the programme offers working professionals flexible opportunities to learn more about technological advances in the industry. Learning technologies such as Canvas, Zoom and virtualised lab infrastructures are just some of the systems that we will be used to deliver this innovative programme. All lectures will be streamed live over the Internet and each session will be captured and stored in the cloud for later retrieval by students. This will facilitate lecture review and revision and will enable students to access lectures and labs anytime, anywhere on any device with a web browser.



Applicants should hold a minimum of a Level 8 in civil engineering, construction, architecture, architectural technology, building services engineering, or other cognate disciplines and relevant experience in the discipline of BIM either in the level 8 undergraduate programme or in practice.

Graduates of the Postgraduate Diploma in Applied BIM & Digital AEC are also eligible for entry to the programme (holders of the Postgraduate Diploma will be required to relinquish the Diploma prior to receiving the Master of Science award).

Equivalent recognition may be given through the Recognition of Prior Learning ( process on an individual case-by-case basis to candidates who have not achieved the above academic standard but who can demonstrate significant relevant professional experience.
