Graduate Certificate in Building Information Modeling (BIM)

The BIM online certificate has been designed to provide comprehensive knowledge in the area of BIM technologies. BIM is a new, model-centric technology designed to support the design, construction, and management of buildings.
The BIM online certificate will be earned primarily by KU graduate students in Architecture and in Architectural Engineering, as well as non-degree-seeking students. These students will show a major interest in BIM and advanced computer applications for design, such as building energy simulations, parametric modeling, and visualizations in virtual environments.
