The aim of this programme is to upskill an Architecture, Engineering or Construction graduate to be a skilled postgraduate with an understanding of the digitisation of Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC), Building Information Modelling (BIM) as well as the potential of digitisation in the delivery of Sustainable Energy Systems and Policies or Facility and Asset Management. The programme will focus on professionals originating from the AEC sector to enhance skills in BIM and Information Technology (IT) to address a current skills gap in the industry.


The underlining philosophy of the programme is the enhancement and deepening of research skills in the context of BIM and digitisation. In addition to learning and developing BIM and digitisation skills, the key aspect of the Masters, through the research project, is to strengthen the graduate’s ability to identify gaps in the current knowledge and areas of future research and to undertake this research to close this gap thereby developing the student’s ability to think strategically.
