Course summary

The Building Information Management Postgraduate Diploma course is ideal for those looking to gain a greater understanding of Building Information Management, who don't wish to study for the full Master's course.

The philosophy of the Building Information Management course reflects the increasingly digital, multi-disciplinary and integrated nature of project delivery, influenced by the demand from governments and clients for greater efficiencies on construction projects. These efficiencies can be gained from more accurate prototyping, simulation, costing, planning, design, production and operation, and will be an output of sound information management and data input to Building Information Modelling (BIM) software.

The unique nature of Westminster's Building Information Management courses is the focus on 'Management', which will create professionals who are able to manage the whole construction process and the information associated with this.

The following modules are indicative of what you will study on this course.
