A newly developed Building Information Modelling (BIM) programme in AEC (architecture, engineering and construction) with BIM Manager Certification Required Contents! Suitable for architects, engineers, interior designers, drafting technicians, project managers, directors and those who are required to apply BIM in their jobs. Building Information Modelling (BIM) technologies are currently the driving force towards a sustainable and holistic building construction industry in Hong Kong. It is quickly becoming the standard delivery method in the construction and building industry in Hong Kong.


・BIM has the potential to save time, budget and resources in any project enabling you to focus on what’s important. 
・BIM makes greener buildings, reducing the carbon footprint and enhancing sustainability practices such as 
   Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) and Building Research Establishment Environmental
   Assessment Method (BREEAM).
・BIM enables collaboration between all the stakeholders and paths the way to 4D, 5D and 6D.

Course Strength

・Professional Diploma in Building Information Modelling is recognised under the Qualifications Framework (QF):
   QF level 4, QR Registration No.: 19/001114/L4, Validity Period: 01/09/2019 to 31/08/2021
   It is widely recognized by HK Government and employers.
・Vplus Creative Industries Government Subsidy is available.
   Successful applicant can claim 60% of the course fee paid up to a max of HK$36,000.
・Collaborated with International BIM expert while supported by Professional Associations
・Teaching team is formed by professionals (Certified Revit Trainers and HKIBIM professionals) with
   over 10 years of practical BIM experience from the industry
・Suitable for those learners who are English speaking professionals
・Small class size for interactive teaching

Expected Learning Outcome

On completion of the course, learners are expected to be able to:

  • Apply the theory of Building Information Modelling (BIM) implementation such as Revit and Navisworks tools and its benefits over traditional methods and workflows;
  • Apply advanced techniques of using BIM to produce models in different disciplines, including architecture, structure and building services; and
  • Interpret the energy analysis and uses in Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) and Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM) through real-life case studies that apply to local Hong Kong projects.
