What will I learn?

This cutting edge program has been designed in strong collaboration with industry to assist construction and other built environment professionals to upskill in order to comply with the stringent practice requirements being demanded by government and knowledgeable private sector clients regarding the use of Building Information Modelling (BIM), Lean Construction Practice (Lean) and Integrated Project delivery (IPD) in optimised construction project delivery. The Graduate Diploma in Building Information Modelling and Integrated Project Delivery program prepares students for productive application of their comprehension of relevant BIM/Lean/IPD knowledge in the work environment, for the benefit of projects and their stakeholders. The program is delivered in intensive mode and has the objective of preparing industry professionals to serve as BIM/Lean/IPD managers. While the course does cover various BIM-related technologies, it does not prepare students to be specialist technicians in the niche areas of the technologies covered by the curriculum. The program includes a capstone subject (20 credit points) in which students will work in teams on a realistic BIM/Lean/IPD project that requires application, analysis and synthesis of complex ‘project’ data. The program components align with the BIM Framework of building SMART Australasia, the open standards of building SMART International, the principles espoused by the Lean Construction Institutes of Australia, the United Kingdom and the United States of America, and internationally recognised principles of IPD.

Bond’s suite of postgraduate programs in Building Information Modelling (BIM) and Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) has been designed to prepare you to serve the immediate and long-term needs of government and industry as they continue to develop infrastructure and construction projects for the benefit of the community.

Some possible job titles/opportunities include- BIM Project Manager, 4D BIM (schedule) consultant, 5D BIM (cost) consultant, BIM Manager, Project BIM Manager. 3D BIM Consultant, BIM Coordinator. BIM Team Leader, IPD Program Manager, BIM Design Office Manager.
