Course Overview

Rapid urbanisation and increasing manpower squeeze are the main drive 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 the 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.

Application/Entry Requirement

 

The minimum admission requirement is at least a Polytechnic Diploma, ITE Technical Diploma/Technical Engineer Diploma/Work-Learn Technical Diploma, or BCA Academy Diploma in built environment.

 

Holders of other equivalent academic qualification will be considered on a case by case basis.

 

Applicants who do not meet the entry requirements may be considered for admission to the course based on evidence of at least 5 years of relevant working experience or supporting evidence of competency readiness. Suitable applicants who are shortlisted may have to go through an interview and/or entrance test. The Polytechnic reserves the right to shortlist and admit applicants.

 

Who Should Attend

The intended target is non-diploma working professionals from the built environment industries who are interested to upgrade their skills in the design and modeling using BIM tools and technology.

What You'll Learn

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.

Subject Code Subject
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 must be a substantial work related to the company existing project/program in any of these relevant BE areas: interior design, architecture, structures, mechanical, electrical, quantity surveying, and facility management.
  • It may be an innovative BIM: modeling, system or process; or an improvement to the existing BIM model, work-flow or system.

It may include some form of BIM developmental work, evaluation of workable designs and implementation of project ideas.

Post-Diploma Certificate in BIM Construction Planning & Management^

The growing construction industry requires professionally trained BIM personnel who are able to utilise BIM digital tools in planning and managing BIM based project construction. The Certificate in BIM Construction Planning and Management provides students with the necessary technical knowledge, practical industry insights and exposure to the relevant industry standards in performing BIM based project information preparation and site planning as well as other specific role in BIM project construction coordination, scheduling and costing.

Subject Code Subject
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 must be a substantial work related to the company existing construction/ sustainability/energy project or program.
  • It may be an innovative BIM construction system and processes or an improvement to the existing BIM plan, work-flow or system.

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.

^ BCAA Subjects. Lessons will be conducted at BCAA.

 

Modes of Assessment

 

The assessment will be based on a combination of coursework components such as practical tests, case studies, presentations, assignments and projects.

Career Opportunities

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.
