Course summary

Why this course?

The need for advanced technologies has become necessary to accomplish sustainable engineering projects, especially for the construction industry. Various Advanced Construction Technologies (ACT) have emerged over the last decades. With the development of Building Information Modelling, the future of construction will be transformed into a more digital industry.

Various Advanced Construction Technologies are now BIM compliant across stages such as:

  • preparation of the client brief
  • conceptual and detailed design
  • construction and operational

These developments have provided technical and management support to solve complex and multidisciplinary problems for all project stakeholders.

There is a unique opportunity for the next generation of graduates to become highly-skilled in this field and gain further advantages in a highly competitive job market. The construction industry stakeholders are in need of high-calibre and highly-competitive candidates with knowledge and skills in construction disciplines, Advanced Construction Technologies and Building Information Modelling.

What you’ll study
