Degree of Master of Science (120 credits) with a major in Product Development, specialisation in Sustainable Building Information Management

Sustainable Building Information Management

This master’s programme aims to develop the knowledge, skills and experience needed to use and manage modern digital technologies, for example BIM and GIS in the built environment sector to create sustainable values. This includes modelling, simulation, analysis, optimization, visualization, sharing, communicating and managing information, processes and organizations.

The built environment sector is the largest single sector in most countries. The sector is responsible for the realization of the complex and very individualized products that make up the built environment, i.e. buildings, lighting systems, roads and water and sewer networks. Digitalization in the built environment has entailed major developments and new applications.

There is a need for engineers who have specialist knowledge concerning Building Information Management (BIM) and Geographic Information Systems (GIS), and the implementation of these technologies in the product realization process. Graduates from the programme will support businesses and organizations in the built environment sector to integrate the steps in the product and production chain as well as contribute with the expertise needed for companies to remain competitive on both local and global basis.

After completing the programme, you will be qualified for positions with companies in need of experts who can use and manage modern computing and information technology like BIM and GIS in the built environment sector. The knowledge received in the programme will enhance the careers of existing professionals and create new career paths for young professionals, e.g. as a BIM engineer, BIM coordinator and BIM manager. Many of these roles did not exist until recently, but are now considered key positions in many companies.

The applicant must hold the minimum of a bachelor’s degree (i.e the equivalent of 180 ECTS credits at an accredited university) with at least 90 ECTS credits in construction engineering or civil engineering, or equivalent. The bachelor’s degree should comprise a minimum of 15 ECTS credits in mathematics. Proof of English proficiency is required.
