This Master's course offers advanced training for BIM managers who will learn to deal with integrated projects of all kinds and sizes. Starting from the European Parliament’s approach to procurements (European Union Public Procurement Directive, EUPPD) and from the implementation of BIM procedures in construction design for public works, funded by the EU since 2016, the course provides an in-depth understanding of the regulations, data processing and key roles in the BIM environment, and will then get into many practical applications. Both the theoretical and practical knowledge will enable the students to manage integrated projects, with the help of the most widely used software.
More than 20 different software will be illustrated by the three software houses we have partnered with: Autodesk, Bentley, and Harpaceas. The basic training has a strong focus on the opportunities for improvement during the procurement phase, project validation, interference checking, and work progress. Particular attention will be given to case studies and homework. The education path is pivoted towards the BIM tools used for managing integrated projects.
The architectural design, MEP, energy and structural design, as well as construction management, are assisted by compatible, BIM software. Indeed, it will be shown how to use those procedures and software not only to manage the building of new structural and infrastructural works but also to find the best technical solutions for the renovation of existing buildings.
Some professional job opportunities which this specializing master will open include working at construction companies, construction technology manufacturers, engineering and architectural design companies, and public administrations. The online students will take care of the internship by themselves because as working professionals they will simply translate their working hours into internship hours. All the lessons will be offered both in Italian and in English.
Master Degree in e-Learning Mode
Each student will have access to her/his own personal account on the Moodle e-learning platform (which is among the most widely used platform globally for online lifelong learning). Here the student will find all the videos of the lessons in streaming, all the teaching material downloadable as pdf files, the calendar of the lessons, and the contacts of all the teachers.
Through her/his own personal account each student will be able to follow the lessons in two ways: the Synchronous Way while the lessons will be made in the classroom and the student will be able to participate as if she/he were present; and the Asynchronous Way after the videos of the lessons, the teaching material, and the contacts of the teacher will be uploaded on the platform, and there will remain at disposal of all the students every hour of the day, every day of the week, and for the whole duration of the master.
Therefore, even after the end of the lessons, all the students will have many more months to access their personal accounts on the platform and delve as deep as they deem necessary and useful into the contents of all the lessons. Until they write and defend their master thesis, and finally graduate.
