Program Description

The ​rapid ​adoption ​of ​Building ​Information ​Modeling ​(BIM) ​in ​the ​construction ​industry ​has ​led ​to ​a ​strong ​demand ​for ​construction ​management ​professionals ​who ​can ​leverage ​the ​many ​benefits ​of ​BIM ​on ​their ​projects. ​This ​extended ​learning ​program ​is ​intended ​to ​compliment ​the ​professional ​degrees ​offered ​by ​the ​University ​of ​Washington ​by ​helping ​construction ​managers ​take ​an ​active ​role ​in ​the ​BIM ​process. ​The ​certificate ​program ​will ​take ​advantage ​of ​a ​blended ​delivery ​approach ​to ​allow ​the ​program ​to ​be ​as ​accessible ​as ​possible ​for ​working ​professionals ​to ​attend, ​including ​those ​outside ​the ​Seattle ​area. ​The ​key ​differentiator ​of ​this ​program ​from ​other ​BIM ​education ​programs ​available ​today ​is ​the ​focus ​on ​applied ​BIM ​skills. ​It ​is ​our ​intent ​that ​attendees ​will ​leave ​this ​program ​with ​tangible ​BIM ​software ​skills ​and ​an ​understanding ​of ​work ​processes, ​as ​well ​as ​enough ​industry ​context ​to ​decide ​why ​and ​how ​to ​leverage ​these ​capabilities.
