Rapid urbanisation and an increasing manpower squeeze are the main drives towards digital engineering technologies as it moves towards advanced and less labour intensive construction technologies. BIM is in the core of the integrated design delivery; from 3D design, integration between fabrication, construction, and logistics, to operating smart, high-quality and high-performance buildings.
The course aims to produce competent and creative BIM professionals who will be able to meet the demands of the building industry, and have the ability to acquire and/or upgrade knowledge and skills relevant to their profession.
All students are required to bring their own notebooks for lessons. You may refer to the required technical specifications for notebooks HERE.
Minimum Entry Requirements
A Polytechnic Diploma or ITE Technical Diploma / Technical Engineer Diploma / Work-Learn Technical Diploma in Science, Technical, Engineering, Math (STEM) or equivalent
OR a Bachelor’s Degree or equivalent
OR a Post-Secondary Certificate with at least 5 years of relevant working experience
To be awarded the Specialist Diploma, participants are required to complete a total of 2 Post-Diploma Certificates (PDCs). A certificate will be issued upon successful completion of each PDC.
Post-Certificate in BIM Building Data & Asset Management
The growing construction industry requires professionally trained BIM personnel who are able to utilise BIM digital tools to improve level integration across various disciplines throughout the entire building construction value chain. The Certificate in BIM Building Data and Asset Management provides students with the necessary technical knowledge, practical industry insights and exposure to the relevant industry standards in creating as-built BIM and managing building digital data for BIM Facility Management.
|ECBD201||BIM Building Data & Collaboration
This hands-on practice based subject provides participants with the know-how and practical skills of modelling in digital design engineering using various BIM tools used in the industry. Topics covered also include the collaboration aspects of various stakeholders in the build environment disciplines: interior design, architecture, structures, mechanical, electrical and quantity surveyor.
|ECBD202||BIM Asset Management
This subject provides participants with the knowledge and skills to create BIM model from 3D scanning and manage BIM data in overall asset management of a facility. The processes of 3D Scanning to BIM Facility Management model will be taught through practical hands-on sessions.
|ECBD203||BIM Project 1
This subject allows participants to apply and integrate the knowledge and skills taught in the subject modules to solve authentic problems they encounter in the workplace. Project measures students’ ability to create and design, showcase coordination or collaboration work among disciplines or implement solutions and ideas with respect to the requirements of the project statement. The project nature should be the following:
It may include some form of BIM developmental work, evaluation of workable designs and implementation of project ideas.
|ECBD204||BIM for Construction Planning
This practice-based subject provides participants with practical skills in planning construction process for BIM project. Topics covered include the project information preparation and site planning, BIM for precast and prefabrication construction project coordination, 4D/5D BIM for project scheduling and costing.
|ECBD205||BIM for Construction Management
This subject provides participants with the know-how and practical skills in managing design processes for BIM implementation in building construction related project. The subject covers documentation, e-submission, design visualization and spatial coordination as well as multi-disciplinary model integration, strategies and coordination work.
|ECBD206||BIM Project 2
This subject extends the participants’ ability to apply and integrate the knowledge and skills taught in the subject modules to solve authentic problems they encounter in the workplace. Project measures students’ ability to plan and manage coordination works among disciplines or implement solutions and ideas with respect to the requirements of the project statement. The project nature should be the following:
It may be an expansion of BIM Project 1 with added depth to the constructability assessment, evaluation of construction designs and implementation of project ideas on site.
At the entry level, the job positions are BIM- Associates/ Modeler/ Project Engineer/ Engineer/ Coordinator1. Upon completing the course, a trainee can move on as a BIM- Senior Associate. They can also look forward to upgrading their knowledge and skills through further CET and executive programmes offered by local Institutes of Higher Learning.
