BIM Tertiary Education

Ensuring the architects, engineers, and construction professionals of tomorrow are BIM capable is an important enabler of BIM adoption.  Developing the teaching resource and assessments is a key step in delivering this. Sometimes this requires upskilling of academic staff too.

In December 2014 key construction tertiary education providers agreed to establish a working group to co-ordinate their efforts to meet this need - The National BIM Education Working Group (NBEWG).

The working groups primary role is to:

Achieve a consistent approach to BIM into all architectural, engineering and construction (AEC) programmes in New Zealand
