The Ruhr University Bochum has joined forces with HOCHTIEF ViCon and the company Planen Bauen 4.0, and will be offering the “BIM Professional” certification course from the summer 2016 semester. Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a new technique for designing, construction and operating built structures. BIM methods are regarded as innovative but, so far, they have not been standardized.
The new course will offer the first standardized training for future BIM experts. Participants will attend six thematically-structured modules in the areas of technology, processes, people and guidelines, and will learn how projects can be more efficiently handled with the help of tried-and-trusted BIM methods and tools.
The BIM training course is aimed at
• engineers and architects in every service phase;
• managers and project managers;
• future BIM experts.
Participants can attend the course part-time, and engage in an integrated way with the overall subject of BIM. They will benefit from the trainers’ lengthy practical experience. On successful completion, participants will receive the “BIM Professional” certificate which is supported and recognized by Planen Bauen 4.0, the company which has been instrumental in introducing BIM in Germany.
The partners involved in this venture guarantee the high quality of the training. The Academy of the Ruhr University, for instance, stands for professional re-search and teaching. HOCHTIEF ViCon (hochtief.com), as the most experienced BIM consult-ant in Germany, will be sharing its practical knowledge and competence with course participants.
