The Building Information Modeling Management graduate certificate program is designed to provide hands-on training to students to enable them to apply and integrate the principles of Building Information Modeling (BIM) to all aspects of a project from conceptualization to operation. Graduates of this program will be able to deploy BIM applications in any organization involved in the procurement, design, construction and operation of building facilities. Successful students will also be able to deploy BIM technologies and BIM Management processes to all phases of a construction project.

Full Description

BIM Screen

Graduates of this program will be able to deploy BIM applications and implement BIM Management processes in any organization involved in the procurement, design, construction and operation of building facilities.

Key features of the program:

  • Class sizes are limited to provide increased access to a state-of-the-art BIM lab facility and interaction with course facilitators.
  • Classes in Semesters 1 and 2 are scheduled on Thursday afternoon, all day Friday and Saturday to assist students who wish to work part-time or continue to work in their current employment.
  • Semester 3 is a field placement that provides you with real-life opportunities to practice the skills learned in Semesters 1 and 2.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

  1. Are there online or evening delivery options to complete the program?

    No, there are no online or evening delivery options to complete the program. However, there are few courses in the program that are delivered in a hybrid format (online and class-based).

  2. What are typical companies that accept BIM management students for field placement?

    BIM management graduate students are hired as interns for field placement by a range of companies involved in architecture, engineering and construction. They include large, medium and small architectural, engineering, general contracting firms, subcontracting companies, government building departments, project developers, construction management firms, suppliers and building manufacturing firms.

  3. What professional credentials can be achieved through the T412 program?

    Students graduating from this program have completed academic requirements for the Educational level 3.0 designation offered by the Canada BIM Council (CanBIM Level2 Educational).

  4. Is there a requirement for field education in this program?

    An integral component of the BIM Management certificate is a mandatory work practicum in the third semester.

  5. Does the college guarantee a work placement to each student enrolled in the program?

    While George Brown College provides assistance to support every student to secure a work placement position, the college makes no guarantee of a job. It is up to each student to do everything possible to secure an approved work placement job, either through a position the college advertises or through their own independent job search. Finding a work placement requires a lot of effort by the student. While companies are happy to participate in a work term experience, the hiring process for these positions is similar to how they hire for permanent positions. Securing a position within the industry is a competitive process and the final decision is made by the employer.

  6. Is the student work placement a paid job?

    Most of the employers provide students with some form of salary or honorarium. Some work positions may be paid, unpaid, commission-based, or provide an honorarium at the end of the work.

  7. Can my previous work experience be considered toward the mandatory field education requirements?

    No, students are required to register for semester 3 and complete a placement in a BIM related industry.

  8. What graduate study opportunities are available upon completion of this program?

    Graduates with bachelor's degrees (international or domestic) are qualified to pursue graduate studies in construction management, facilities management, real estate development and other related fields of study. You will need to contact universities directly to explore what opportunities you may be eligible for. The Angelo DelZotto School of Construction Management does not have any articulation with other universities for graduate studies. Graduates of this program are required to apply to graduate schools themselves.

  9. What are the qualifications of the faculty teaching in the program?

    All faculty teaching in the program are highly trained and qualified and have significant industry experience they bring to the classroom. Most are dual professionals who are active both in the industry and academia. They possess professional credentials such as OAA, CanBIM, CIOB, RICS, and P.Eng., and continually engage in a level of scholarship, research or creative activity sufficient to ensure their currency in the field.

  10. Is there an opportunity for students to engage in BIM-related applied research while completing the BIM Management program?

    Applied research is an integral part of the BIM Management program. Experiential, applied training is critical for students entering the workforce because it promotes the development of authentic, industry-relevant knowledge and skills and provides students with the capacity to engage with industry professionals and leading edge technologies. There are many opportunities for students to develop their applied research skills while working toward their program through grant-supported projects or Capstone industry research projects.

Part Time Study Options
