Program Goals

The program aims to qualify staff in project management and supervision of its implementation by using building information modeling. It, also, aims to qualify in the construction project management and by using BIM some specialists who are able to:

1. Develop learners' skills regarding project management and follow-up by using BIM technology.

2. Enhance the ability to use information technology.

3. Develop work skills individually and collectively and communicate with co-workers effectively.

4. Provide consultations in the field of gradually transferring and developing companies and institutions towards BIM technology.

5. Enhance learners 'abilities to negotiate, design and complete BIM activities projects that meet their needs and employers' needs, and the ability to participate in technology adoption negotiations.

6. Develop the skills of conducting scientific research at the national, regional and international levels.

7. Promote the use of specialized English.

This requires that they have a base of science and knowledge specialized in:

• Building information modeling and data interoperability.

• Fundamentals of project management and follow-up.

• Analyzing and evaluating performance and developing strategies (institutional development).

• Management of construction contracts and BIM-based contracts.

• Human Resource Management.

• Modeling and decision-making methods.

• BIM dimensions and levels.

• Sustainability and maintenance by using BIM.

Program objective: 

Learning outcomes
