Course Objective

BIM is identified as one of the key technology drivers by the Building and Construction Authority (BCA) to improve work productivity and level of integration across the various disciplines in the Built Environment (BE) Industry. The School of Architecture and the Built Environment (ABE) is pleased to introduce the Specialist Diploma in Building Information Modelling Management to align with the vision of BCA. This course is offered to applicants who are keen to further their education in Building Information Modelling (BIM) knowledge as part of the journey to being a life-long learner. This course will equip applicants with the ability to facilitate and reinforce their organisation’s BIM capabilities and deliver building and construction projects using the various BIM 3D, 4D and 5D platforms.

This course is offered to both Work-Study Programme (WSP) and non-WSP applicants.

This is a part-time evening course and it can be completed in a duration of one year. Applicants are required to bring their computer notebook when attending lessons, as they may need it to access the e-learning material, write reports, etc.

The Specialist Diploma in Building Information Modelling Management course is designed to boost the level of expertise in Singapore and deepen the skills and knowledge of applicants in BIM management. This is achieved through institutional-based learning at SP and supplemented by the on-the-job (OJT) training for WSP applicants.

Course Outline

The Specialist Diploma in Building Information Modelling Management will be conducted over one academic year, consisting of two academic semesters.

Trainees will be able to complete 1 Post-Diploma Certificate (PDC) in each Semester.  Each PDC comprises of 3 Modules as shown below:
