Building Information Modeling (BIM)

(MBING-M 1.1-e) (IV-d Integrated Computational Design)
in Master // FK5

Since the winter semester of 2016, the BIM Institute of the University of Wuppertal has been offering a module on Building Information Modelling (BIM) for architects and civil engineers in university study, together with other academic chairs from the fields of civil engineering and architecture as well as lecturers from the field. Students gain in-depth knowledge about the BIM method over the entire life cycle of a building in structural engineering. In addition to classical knowledge transfer, modern learning methods are applied and the module concludes with extensive practical project work by the students.

Dear students,

our Building Information Modelling (BIM) module (MBING - M 1.1-e) (IV-d Integrated Computational Design) for architects and civil engineers will take place again this year.

Within the framework of this module, you will be taught the method of Building Information Modelling along the life cycle of real estate from the perspective of the various players (client, planner, contractor, facility manager, etc.). Here, too, we have exciting speakers from politics and business this year!

A joint project work between students of architecture and civil engineering will help to implement what they have learned together in a practical way and to promote team spirit. This year, the focus will be on the future topic of Green BIM, i.e. the consideration of sustainable aspects in relation to the planning, construction and operation of tomorrow. Based on a BIM model of the "FOUR Frankfurt" planned by the architectural firm HPP, the façade will be redesigned with sustainability aspects in mind. This will be followed by calculations, scheduling and new approaches to ensure sustainable buildings. Here, we rely on your creativity.
Another component of the module is the excursion to the "FOUR Frankfurt" construction site.

The BIM Institute is also a recognised training partner according to the requirements of the international certification programme "Professional Certification - Foundation" of buildingSMART International as well as the VDI guideline VDI/bs-MT 2552 part 8.1. Here you have the opportunity to obtain the buildingSMART certificate via e-learning offered parallel to the BIM module for a fee of 200 €.

Please register via Moodle for the Building Information Modelling (BIM) (MBING - M 1.1-e) (IV-d Integrated Computational Design), as participation is also limited to 20 persons here.
