They needed someone to manage change. We didn’t use the term business analyst. But that’s how I launched my career.

When an organization has a problem, it can be tempting to guess what the issue is and try to fix it right away. But without appropriate business analysis, a lot of time and money can be wasted on solutions that don’t address the underlying problem.

Practical applications

Unlike most BIM-focused programs in Canada, this program focuses on the process not the software. It provides you with a comprehensive, higher-level understanding, preparing you to manage projects and work effectively within a cross-functional AECOO team. The BIM program was designed by very experienced industry experts who have been very involved in practical applications in BIM. It’s also connected to cutting-edge research in the field of BIM with its Special Topics course offerings. You will learn practical applications and all about up and coming areas in Canada and internationally.

Building Information Modeling (BIM) Management

Learn BIM concepts, principles and processes. Learn about the uses and benefits of BIM, commonly used BIM tools and technology and gain related experience in an applied project. Whether you are a student or an established professional, BIM prepares you for the future, a future that’s already here.

Open doors in your career

In the future, building owners will require final documents in a BIM format. Many already do. At firms everywhere, everyone will require some level of knowledge on the processes and standards. For professionals and future professionals working in Architecture, Engineering, Construction and Management including Owners and Operators (AECOO), understanding Building Information Modeling (BIM) Management and its international standards for exchanging project information and managing a project through its entire lifecycle are essential to preparing for the future and opening doors in your career.

The University of Manitoba Extended Education Building Information Modeling (BIM) Management certificate is certified as CanBIM Foundations – Theory: Proficient (T4).

*BIM is not a software. It is a process.

We need to upskill humans in the management of this process. They can't simply rely on technology. It changes."

Industry consultant, senior consultant for global consulting company Turner and Townsend

Mark Meagher

*No matter which software you are using, you must understand what defines a project or building and the standard applications of that data. Other programs have a different focus. This is not a deep dive into the software. It's the higher-level understanding that is much harder to acquire on your own."

Program consultant from the Faculty of Architecture, adjunct professor in the Department of Landscape Architecture

Jason Shields

"The way we deliver projects is changing. BIM is not going away. You can't avoid knowing how to do it. The more people who know how to use it, the more successful your projects will be. Just one person should not hold the key. All should have a basic

understanding. With this program, you will become quite skilled and knowledgeable. You will learn

something new both in the professional workplace and onsite."

Program consultant from Faculty of Architecture, assistant professor in the Department of Interior Design
