What you will learn
Gain contemporary skills and knowledge for your job now.
The Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) industry is growing rapidly, and the need to develop more sustainable infrastructure designs, processes, and business models is well recognised.
Building Information Modelling (BIM), which integrates both process and technology, can play a transformative role in achieving this aim and there is a growing expectation for professionals within the industry to upskill in this area.
Designed for professionals working in the infrastructure sector, this Melbourne MicroCert will give you deeper insight into how BIM works and how you can use it to create and manage all aspects of a construction project.
This project-based course has been endorsed by Arup, a global leader in the engineering design space.
Gain a greater understanding of the AEC industry
A chain is only as strong as its weakest link. Learn how supply chain challenges impact the AEC business model contributing to waste and explore how organisations can integrate BIM processes and technologies to develop crucial strategies for controlling material consumption.
Analyse the AEC business model
Explore common shortcomings of how design, supply, construction and operation teams work and interact together within a case study or within your own organisation.
You’ll then apply your knowledge to identify opportunities to address these shortcomings to create a positive and lasting impact.
Understand the fundamentals of Building Information Modelling
Investigate the BIM concept to understand it from both a data and process perspective and identify how it can be used to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of an existing AEC business model. Develop a pitch on the benefits of BIM, discuss how your organisation could benefit from the BIM process, and gain valuable tutor feedback.
Confidently communicate the value of BIM and influence stakeholders
Applying your new knowledge, you'll create a 10-minute presentation for senior executives in your organisation. Within this presentation you'll outline how common AEC industry issues may be manifesting within your organisation and/or the opportunities you have identified for BIM to create tangible solutions and improvements to your processes, projects and business model.
Who you will learn from
Learn from skilled academic and professional experts who will share invaluable knowledge you can use in your job.
